Successful call for contributions for the next publication "Innovation and Social Intervention"

A successful call for authors. The publication project "Innovation and Social Intervention", planned for the end of 2020, has attracted a great deal of interest - as evidenced by the large number of proposals.

Launched at the end of June, the call for authors for the publication (in French) "Innovation et intervention sociales : impacts, méthodes et mises en œuvre dans les domaines de la santé et de l’action sociale" received nearly fifty publication intentions. For this still relatively new field of activity, this call marks a turning point. Its success demonstrates the interest of people involved in this research domain and the development of this theme within universities and institutions active in the fields of health and social action, in Switzerland and abroad.

This call accompanies the establishment of the "LIVES social innovation" lab which aims to support the development of concrete solutions to overcome vulnerability and thus addresses the social needs and problems that affect our societies in full transformation. Currently in preparation, the laboratory's activities are scheduled to begin in spring 2020. "LIVES social innovation" is the result of a collaboration between the NCCR LIVES and the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland (HES-SO), particularly in the fields of social work and health.
