Mapping Cross-Border Collaboration
The NSSIN is developing an interactive mapping tool which will for the first time map the collaborations, opportunities for collaborations, and spatial distribution of organisations working in the field of social innovation. The mapping tool will take the form of an on-line data visualisation which will allow users to filter collaborations spatially and by different objectives i.e. joint funding applications, joint projects, joint events etc. and across the five sectors. Developing this tool is important as it will identify areas of shared interest and potential collaboration, avoid duplication of efforts and resources and allow organisations to find each other in order to share knowledge and develop new innovative ideas. The mapping tool is an ongoing process and will allow for the impact of the network and the levels of collaboration to be measured over time. Please follow the link to complete the survey.
