How we work
The HUB is a distributed global network of independent local spaces that share the same brand and core identity.
HUBs co-own the assets of the network and make global decisions on the principle of “1 vote per HUB”. In return for getting access to the benefits of being a global network, each HUB contributes financially to maintain global operations and invest in the further development of the network. To ensure shared quality standards across the network, each new HUB is approved and voted into the HUB Association following a peer review process.
We encourage the creation of “clusters” of people who want to work across the network on common projects. Currently there are two operating clusters and many more in the making: HUB Practice Academy: a distributed learning structure aimed at disseminating knowledge and talent across our network and EU Cluster: this group coordinates multi-HUB initiatives within Europe, seeking to participate in the shaping of the EU social innovation agenda.
We are independent, non-religious and non-politically associated.
