Social Innovation through Technology Collaborations

A growing movement of social innovators who are now developing inspiring technological solutions for a variety of social issues. For example, St. James’ Settlement FOOD-CO rescued over 400 tonnes of food surplus in the past three years, which is around HKD38 million in value. This is achieved through information exchange system among food donors, food support service operators and other stakeholders. The social return on investment is about 1:4. Every year the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services in Chinese University is rolling out 20 to 30 applied research projects which create societal betterment through social technologies or information technologies. Finally, Microsoft has been organizing annual NGO Days which aim at sharing best practices to build NGO’s capacity through using software applications.
