Centre for Social Innovation Management

Social Innovation involves the creation of solutions that benefits society as a whole rather than private individuals. It is inherently multidisciplinary and requires embracing cross-sector dynamics and interaction.

Our Centre for Social Innovation Management (CSIM) is a new research centre based within the Surrey Business School that will conduct research and be actively involved in teaching and engagement related to social innovation & entrepreneurship, responsible management and social impact investing.

Our mission

The Centre will leverage the University’s collective wisdom on social innovation by fostering engagement within different disciplines and establishing relationships with external stakeholders, bridging scholarly and practitioner connections. 

Research themes

Our primary research activities will be focused on three broad, related areas.
