Abstract The report builds on the knowledge created by the FUSIONS position paper “Stimulating social innovation through policy measures” that uses as key inputs the range of existing social innovation initiatives catalogued by FUSIONS WP4 in the inventory and draws on the outcomes of the WP3 Social Camp event that gathered together a number of social innovators to discuss the major challenges and policy barriers they encounter. The position paper identified a preliminary set of policies aimed to stimulate social innovation initiatives.
The present study takes the analysis further by detecting the policy measures used to stimulate social innovation in 5 sectors environment, health, workplace innovation, regional strategies, social economy/social entrepreneurship plus food waste-, recognizing the major policy barriers to social innovation and identifying a set of policy options potentially stimulating social innovation and addressing food waste prevention and reduction.
The report used a mix of qualitative methodologies and the results obtained in other FUSIONS’ activities to detect best practices and good examples of projects promoting social innovation, to identify barriers for the uptake of social innovation.
