Abstract

This exploratory study aims at understanding the social aspects of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by suggesting how the interface involving technological innovation and social innovation can resolve societal and socioeconomic problems with stress on sustainable development. We view social innovation and social enterprise as new amalgam for solving social problems in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. By applying theoretical analysis of the existing literature about the correlation between the Fourth Industrial Revolution and social innovation and social enterprise, we aim to describe the opportunities, forms and the challenges unfolding in this new age. UK and China case studies will provide the empirical evidences which could support social innovators and social enterprise understand the implications in fields of application of the Fourth Industrial Revolution plus the interplay between them.
