The University of New Hampshire has launched a new center focused on social innovation, the application of market-based and cross-sector strategies to develop sustainable, scalable solutions to societal problems.

A joint venture of the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics and the Carsey School of Public Policy, the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise will bring together individual entrepreneurs and business models (traditionally the domain of business schools) with public policy and systemic change (traditionally the domain of policy schools).

The center will be led by co-directors Fiona Wilson and Yusi Turell. In their previous roles at UNH, they have collaborated to build several university-wide initiatives in social innovation, including the NH Social Venture Innovation Challenge and the Social Innovation Internship.
