QUASI Seminar Series
The Rutgers Institute for Corporate Social Innovation (RICSI) is proud to host the Questions & Unanswers About Social Innovation (QUASI) Seminar Series
Framed as debates, QUASI seminars are designed to help scholars develop richer and more refined research questions about social innovation. QUASI seminars do not provide answers but instead identify conditions, contingencies, conundrums, and paradoxes that merit further research, in hopes that scholars will pursue these refined lines of inquiry. Each monthly session lasts one hour, followed by an optional 30 minutes of open or small group discussion. Sessions are hosted on Zoom and, subject to presenter approval, recorded and made available upon request.To participate in the next upcoming session, please register here. Registration will remain open until the morning of the session, and the link will be sent via email prior to the session start time.
