Description: ZSI implements research and application projects on the social embedding and impact of all types of innovations and contributes to the design and diffusion of socially accepted and sustainable innovations to meet global challenges. Since its founding in 1990, ZSI is a strong and well received partner in steadily expanding international networks participating in competitive Calls for Proposals and Calls for Tender published by public authorities on national, European and international levels. ZSI was Austria’s most successful social scientific research institute in FP7 and is currently coordinating several H2020 projects as well (in addition to being a partner in several others).
