NSI annually invites research proposal submissions that qualify for co-financing if they contribute to NSI’s mission, and meet NSI criteria.
The NSI focuses on social and organizational innovations to improve the development and use of talent and know-how and ultimately firm performance. NSI believes that this can only be achieved if science, business and social organizations join forces. By focusing research on issues that firms and other organizations face in real life, and by studying these issues with a scientific approach, we will be able to gather knowledge about social innovation processes that are of direct importance to the economy.
NSI has set up four related research programmes.
– Education and the social context (coordinator: Prof. Dr. Lex Borghans)
– Human resource development in companies (coordinator: Prof. Dr. Andries de Grip)
– Business dynamics (coordinator: Prof. Dr. Paul Iske)
– Social Innovation in SMEs (coordinator: Dr. Anita van Gils)
