This Handbook forms the first step in preparing students and prospective social entrepreneurs to respond more effectively to emerging social needs, by characterising the nature and specific needs of local communities.

Readers will be introduced not only to the technologies that might enable remote working but also to strategies that might be employed for virtual collaboration, particularly in a social innovation context.

It was been developed after an assessment of the social needs and challenges within the participating communities, especially in the wake of the Coronavirus; as well as a review of the latest technologies that have emerged post-pandemic, and their applications for remote working.
