Social Innovation: The Need for Global Change

The world is changing fast- The Transport and Mobility sector is a perfect example of an area riddled with challenges brought about by the complexities of the modern world, but ripe for innovation for the betterment of society, businesses, and individuals- In Transport and Mobility, the question is how will we empower our increasingly urbanised global population with door-to-door, multi-modal transport solutions that will be affordable for all our citizens-

And furthermore, how can we deploy innovation to solve the growing challenges of congestion, emissions, safety, convenience and comfort? In our previous Whitepapers (http://www-hitachi-eu/en/sib/whitepapers/), we defined Social Innovation as “the deployment of technology and new business models to bring about real positive change to the lives of individuals and societies, creating shared value-” By starting from the most critical global mega trends (Urbanisation; Smart is the New Green; Future of Energy; Future of Mobility; and Health, Wellness & Wellbeing), we identified the key element of convergence as absolutely critical to the delivery of Social Innovation- That means convergence of technologies, industries, products and business models, including finance- Looking closely at the sectors that Frost & Sullivan define as having the greatest need for Social Innovation (Energy, Water, Transportation, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Construction and Natural Resources), we also identified that Social Innovation will represent a market opportunity of $ trillion by 2020-

In this Whitepaper we will highlight the specific mega trends impacting the future of mobility, and define what Social Innovation can deliver to the transportation market- We will take a deep dive into the challenges and opportunities for Social Innovation in Transport and Mobility, as well as quantifying the relevant opportunities and their impact from our extensive research in this market- We will also introduce Hitachi and its Social Innovation Business and show how the company has become a visionary global player with a thought leading position in the sphere of Social Innovation, as well as sharing some examples of ground-breaking projects being delivered around the world in the crucial areas of rail, V2X communication, traffic management and Electric Vehicle (EV) charging, and IT enabled services-

We outline how Hitachi is building for the future using technology led solutions in an efficient, integrated way- This Whitepaper is supplemented by the findings and strategic discussions of the Social Innovation Forum, hosted in London on June 17th 2015 and co-hosted by Hitachi and Frost & Sullivan-
