THE SOCIAL INNOVATORS’ INTEGRATION LAB (SIIL)

The Social Innovators’ Integration Lab (SIIL) is a shared observatory for social economy, social entrepreneurship and social innovation launched by the Social Economy Initiative, Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management, and McGill University. Located within the Quartier de l’innovation, SIIL aims at nurturing a presence for McGill researchers, students and practitioners to work alongside social economy organizations with the overarching goal to develop a better understanding of social innovation and social entrepreneurship in urban environments.

The SIIL research project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. An interdisciplinary team of academics including members from Desautels Faculty of Management (McGill University) and a social geographer of the Geomatics & Cartographic Research Centre (Carleton University) support the program development. Key partner organizations include Gestion Immobilière Quo Vadis, the Quartier de l’innovation of Montreal and the Regroupement économique et social du Sud-Ouest.
