We look for more collaborative, better coordinated solutions to the migrant crisis Рbringing together philanthropy, community groups, government and the private sector (as well as ordinary citizens and migrants) to discover new ideas and understand which should be scaled up.

For example:

Nesta Italia will identify and scale up the most promising responses to migration by, for example, creating an online repository of tried and tested solutions; offering in-house incubation programmes aimed at supporting high-potential innovators with access to social venture and financial advice; and piloting the most promising ideas in a variety of contexts. Our work connects migrants and refugees with innovators in the private, public and social sector and seeks to improve perceptions and attitudes towards newcomers – so that they are welcomed as new citizens, employees and entrepreneurs of the future.
