Transnational Network for Social Innovation Incubation

Transnational Network for Social Innovation Incubation – TRANSITION – was a 30-month project that supported the scaling-up of 300 social innovations across Europe by developing a network of incubators which brought together established partners within the fields of social innovation and innovation-based incubation.

As a main outcome, “The Social Innovation Journey”, shaped by POLIMI Desis Lab, was conceived as action format, focusing on the sequence of steps social innovators may go through acquiring the skills and capabilities they need to grow and increase the level of positive impact on the wider society. The Social Innovation Toolbox integrated the Journey by presenting a selection of tools developed and refined by TRANSITION partners to support social innovators at different stages of the Social Innovation Journey.

Coordinated by the European BIC Network (EBN), Transition was organized around six Scaling Centres spread across Europe. The Italian Scaling Centre for TRANSITION was based in Milan and made up of the Polimi DESIS Lab and Make a Cube3 .
