Our Vision

Innovation can play a fundamental role in mitigating social inequalities and advancing society. We believe that all investment made would be inadequate if the social perspective is not taken from the outset. Adopting the social perspective as a concept and a tool can help researchers and business developers towards areas and features that require more attention than others. 

The social perspective involves the interaction of various stakeholders and complex organisational and institutional systems. Thus, collaboration is a key step to ensure that innovation and scientific research have a measurable impact on future societies.

We place the citizen at the center of innovation and have thus shown the ability to better exploit the opportunities offered by new information and communication technology concepts and solutions to the specific needs and aspirations of local contexts, cultures, and creativity potentials. 

We are a user-centered, open innovation ecosystem. We base our service on systematic user co-creation approach integrating research and innovation processes in real-life communities and settings.

This is SinovaLab – a living lab for social welfare that cares.
