Free VCOSS Briefing Papers: Social innovation and the social economy

Social innovation and the social economy can cause great confusion. Many terms are new, overlapping or not that useful in the first place.

Our colleagues at VCOSS have put together a series of briefing papers to help fight the confusion.

The papers introduce key terms, distill issues and define the risks and potential benefits of various approaches.

VCOSS has generously allowed us to enter them into The TasCOSS Vault.
