Welcome to ISIRC2023

Enhancing the multidisciplinarity of social innovation:
bringing together the social sciences, engineering and technology

6 - 8 september 2023

Universidade do Minho, Campus de Azurém, Guimarães

We invite academic researchers and practitioners to participate in the 15th International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC), in Guimarães, Portugal. The conference is being organized by the ALGORITMI Research Centre and the Research Centre on Education, University of Minho. It will take place at the School of Engineering, University of Minho, in Guimarães from 6 to 8 of September 2023.
Our main goal is to join together in this event academics and practitioners from a variety of fields with an interest in the topic of social innovation and social entrepreneurship. We expect to provide a forum of debate for researchers and practitioners, supporting the sharing of experiences, promoting cross-knowledge and strengthening the knowledge about social innovation research.
You will also have the opportunity to visit Guimarães, a magnificent city of medieval origin known for being the cradle of the Portuguese nation. You may then admire the remarkably well-preserved Historical Quarter of Guimarães classified by UNESCO as World Heritage site since 2001, getting also in contact with the popular traditions and taste the famous gastronomy of the Minho region.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Guimarães in September 2023!
