Provision of thematic reports in the frame of the 2014-2015 capitalisation process of the URBACT European Programme Lot 3: Social Innovation in the Cities

Cities increasingly face multiple and wicked issues and have fewer resources to tackle them.The traditional governance model struggles to address these issues and its limits reveal the need for a new governance culture. This study for URBACT “Social innovation in cities” investigates the way social innovation has been catalysed in some cities together with a governance structural change, based on integrated, participatory and co-production approaches.
