We look for more collaborative, better coordinated solutions to the migrant crisis – bringing 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.
