In September 2022, EU-SPRI in cooperation with TU Dortmund University (Social Research Centre), European School of Social Innovation (ESSI) and Fraunhofer ISI will organise the Early Career Research Conference (ECC) entitled “Social Innovation Policy: Concepts, Methods and Policy Practices”.
Early career researchers are invited to actively participate.
The conference will offer a varied programme, including paper presentation sessions, keynote talks, policy and practitioners panel, a conference award, networking sessions, social activities and conference dinner.
Early career researchers can choose one of the two following options to present their work: 1) full paper presentation (15-minute presentation followed by a discussion) or 2) speed talk or poster presentation (5-minute pitches, followed by discussion in break-out groups). The audience is expected (and encouraged) to actively participate in the discussion. For each full paper, a senior and a junior (early career) discussant will prepare direct feedback to the presenter.
This Early Career Conference addresses the guiding theme “Social Innovation Policy: Concepts, Methods and Policy Practices”. The conference is organized in streams according to the above thematic fields.
The conference will take place in person in Dortmund, Germany (if possible).
Early career researchers interested in participating in this ECC must submit an extended abstract (750 to 1,000 words, including key references) as well as a short motivation letter (1-2 paragraphs, max 1 page) no later than May 16, 2022 via email to

The decision will be communicated to the authors by the 7th of June 2022. If accepted, (draft) full papers must be submitted 3 weeks prior to the conference, i.e. 31st of August (speed talk submissions only need to submit their presentation as pdf).
