This Policy Paper examines the role of Social Innovation in Social Sciences and Humanities. It provides a historical overview of the various meanings of SI in modern times and in European Commission policies. This variety can be visualised on a continuum at the extremes of which figure models oriented to practical-social changes and models oriented to political-social transformation. The recent shift of EC research funding towards the practical pole is problematic. The role of the political, politics and collective action and scalability of SI initiatives and practices deserve significantly more research and policy attention, the paper argues. It makes epistemological suggestions on how to reequilibrate the balance between foci and approaches in European SI research.
Keywords: Social Innovation; Collective Action; Scalability; Interdisciplinarity; Transdisciplinarity.
