The Philanthropy and Territory Department promotes all actions developed by a civil, organised society - families and individuals - aiming to improve life in local communities by mobilizing economic, cognitive, technical, inventive and human resources. In this regard, an important part is played by practices based on sharing, co-responsibility, creativity and donating, known as social innovation, and the environments in which these practices develop.
An essential element regarding the activities of the Department is finding the territory and ecosystem, ie: the environment in which programmes and projects proposed by the public operator are developed and which must involve communities and groups in the widest possible sense.
Specifically, the Department handles research of the empirical-analytical type as well as that oriented to policy-making , with special focus on Italy’s North West area, in a context of social, cultural and economic geography which includes local social networking.
OIS - OPEN INNOVATION SUMMIT, Cities as engines of innovation and inclusive growth is in Turin at Open Incet (via Francesco Cigna 96/17) from 5th to 7th April.
Two prizes of up to € 50,000 each for new solutions in the field of combined school/work and alternative use of school facilities.
