Impact Summit

11 December 2018 @ 15 h 00 min - 20 h 00 min

Impact Summit – Second edition 



If you believe that Social Innovation can only emerge with strong and lasting cross-sector partnerships, this event is made for you!

The Impact summit 2018 has the objective to connect and inspire different players of the ecosystem: educational institutions, civic society, private companies, entrepreneurs and the public sector. Participants will be invited to work together in a cross-sectorial way to identify new opportunities of collaboration that could accelerate social innovation that could benefit the society.


This collaborative event will be divided in two parts:

A “WORLD CAFE” (from 15:00 to 18:30) gathering more than 40 individuals and organizations engaged in the social transition. This methodology is a simple and effective way to enhance connection, dialogue and constructive exchanges.

A CONFERENCE (FREE event from 18:00 to 20:00) will follow with the conclusions of the workshop and an inspiring talk about « The importance of the ecosystem to create synergies and foster social innovation ». It will also be the occasion to share the outcomes of the First Impact Trophy 2018, connecting leading Private Companies with NonProfit Organisations (www.impact-trophy.com)
