Centre for Social Innovation at Teesside University

The Centre works with stakeholders to co-develop a bespoke evaluation plan so they can demonstrate the impact of their projects, now and in the future.

Centre for Social Innovation

The Centre for Social Innovation (CSEI) at Teesside University was launched in 2019 in response to the growing demand for research that will address current societal challenges.

It aims to stimulate the greater sharing of knowledge and collaborative research between academics and public stakeholders.

Many organisations are measured on their success in achieving social outcomes, which in turn is central to their ability to maintain trust and legitimacy with both their stakeholders and future funders.

Increasingly, those organisations need to be able to provide independent evidence to funding bodies that demonstrates how outcomes and value has been achieved. This type of evaluative research is often complex, crosses a wide variety of academic disciplines and requires independence.

The CSEI works with organisations across the North East and beyond, to develop bespoke research-led evaluation projects of grant funded projects.
