The objective of the workshop is to debate how the full potential of social media can be harnessed to support large-scale and time-efficient social innovations. The workshop will explore two dimensions along which research might help social innovation to take place at a larger scale: (1) The design of new social media tools offering better support for more sophisticated interactions; (2) The conceptual and computational development of new frameworks for public policy modeling and implementation to help public authorities to harness the full potential of social media and social innovation.
