Initiated by the GROUPE SOS, the first social enterprise in Europe, and four academic partners (Cnam, Sciences Po, Sorbonne University and Paris-Dauphine University), IMPACT TANK is a think tank dedicated to evaluate impacts of positive social innovations. It will combine academic expertise and field experience to develop promising social innovations on a large scale and inspire public debate through the comparison of impacts. The first topics will focus on innovations on the prevention of loss of autonomy, inclusion in employment, or the revitalization of territories.
IMPACT TANK will be officially launched on 30 September 2020. It will be chaired by Agnès Audier, expert in social policies and the transformation of public action, and based on a Steering Committee made up of representatives of the partner universities and various experts.
