Today, the growing differentiation of needs, combined with economic and managerial difficulties of the traditional welfare state systems, indicates how citizens, Companies, the Third Sector and Public Administration, must be active protagonists in the processes of planning and production of services. The difficulties for the PA and for companies, especially SMEs to develop and manage welfare projects, can be overcome by thinking according to the territorial ecosystem, ie through the involvement of all territorial actors in social innovation. This kind of social innovation involves the experimentation of a new way of interpreting and governing the relationships between all the subjects that come into play: there are no longer suppliers and beneficiaries of welfare actions, but many actors with complementary roles. "Welfare 4.0", by Innova S.r.l. and WelfareLab a.p.s., is one of the models that envisage the creation of a territorial network, based on the organizational principle of circular subsidiarity, according to the perspective of shared social responsibility and it assumes the territorial dimension as a generative resource.
