NEOPOLIS is an entrepreneurial research and idea development network, which was founded by young entrepreneurs and scholars.
We are interested in political, economic and societal concepts and innovations that help us to face the challenges of the 21st century. Our particular interest lies in social innovations that strengthen individual freedom and self-responsibility as well as solidarity and a just society.
Current projects relate to topics such as direct democracy, unconditional basic income, trustee ownership, peer to peer insurances, and decentralised social and economic networks.
We explore these issues through theoretical and empirical research, field experiments, prototypes and by providing discussion platforms such as conferences.
