Include 2011 was the sixth
International conference on Inclusive Design. As a
concept, social innovation has growing currency in society, government,
academia and business. It manifests itself in many different ways in different
contexts. Its meanings extend from public service and policy innovation to
initiatives in assistive technology and to aspects of civic participation and
In all of these areas, design has a key role to play. It can make policy visible and participation possible. In particular, inclusive design can deliver innovations of social value to communities and markets.
The Include 2011 international conference at the Royal College of Art sought papers on all design aspects that catalyse social innovation, in particular:
- Organisation - what design tools, techniques,
frameworks and networks support and enhance social innovation?
- Origins - how has social innovation emerged
as a design construct and in what ways does it manifest itself?
- Outputs - research studies and design
exemplars of social innovation, drawn from public space, health, transport and
other key domains.
Include 2011 was particularly interested in papers that explored the direct relationship between inclusive design and social innovation.
