Social Innovation Summit in Sweden

Social Innovation Summit is one of the biggest yearly summits for social innovation in the Nordic region. A meeting point for entrepreneurs, change makers, investors and innovators, politicians and policy makers from all sectors of the society. Where they are creating solutions to the major challenges society is facing today – together. We identify key issues of the future, work across sectors and together develop new knowledge on social innovation.


The major challenges the world is facing today demands new methods, new ways of working, and new ways of thinking. By organizing Social Innovation Summit, we are providing a gathering point where all sectors can meet and together face these challenges by sharing and creating solutions for these vital questions of the future.


Forum for Social Innovation Sweden (FSIS) at Malmö University is the team behind Social Innovation Summit. FSIS is Sweden’s collective national knowledge platform for social innovation and social entrepreneurship. Together with academia, the business-, public- and non-profit sector, we are building capacity for innovation, that will meet today’s challenges in society. 


Social Innovation Summit takes place in Malmö once a year. It lasts for two days, and welcomes more than 600 participants each year since its inauguration in 2015. Themes and focal questions vary every year, but the Summit always offers a program with keynote-speakers, master classes, workshops and roundtable discussions. Speakers and participants come from all sectors and industries, all focusing on innovation and concrete examples of social innovation, in different ways.

In addition to this multifaceted program, Social Innovation Summit is a multitudinous meeting point, an arena gathering organizations and individuals from all sectors and from multiple countries. In our Summit Salon, we share knowledge and experiences with each other, get inspiration from all over the country and around the world, as well as initiating and developing collaborations. This is why, besides the program, we have a multitude of different concepts in the Summit Salon, where participants are offered experiences, activities and a generous meeting space.
