Platform for Social Innovation

How can NGOs, foundations, commerce, social entrepreneurs, administrations and socially committed citizens in Russia and its neighbouring countries be encouraged to participate actively in society and enter into strategic collaborations with partners at home and abroad?

MitOst, together with the BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, established the Platform for Social Innovation at the end of 2014. It provides a framework for exchange, networking and training – for professionals, facilitators and intermediaries from civil society, administration, commerce and science. Together with international and local partners, projects are developed that enable cross-sectoral and transnational cooperation as well as open dialogue.

The Impact Hub Moscow is one of the Platforms most important partners in Russia. The center supports socially significant entrepreneurial projects and is part of the Global Impact Hub Network, with 92 centres in 49 countries.
