The Unit for Social Innovation and Research “Shipyard”

The Unit for Social Innovation and Research “Shipyard” was created with the aim of critical and reliable description of challenges of social life in Poland and to search for and promote effective, innovative methods of reacting to them, based on the principles of civic participation. It also aspires to be a place of formation and intellectual development of persons from different environments, ready to engage in public affairs in a way going beyond individual interests.

Together with Shipyard, TechSoup Europe implemented Apps4Warsaw open data project and also prepared Breakfast for Change Makers from CEE during the EFC Annual Summit in Warsaw.
