About us

Spotlight on Innovation (Spotin) is a non-profit organization that serves as a meeting point for the promotion of innovation in various fields of action to the benefit of society. Special emphasis is given on the use of new technologies, synthesis and visualization of information through mapping applications and geospatial storytelling.

We call on the whole society (schools, local communities, municipalities, universities, institutions, experts from different disciplines) to join, learn and experiment with us on the field through a creative, inquiry-based and participatory way, thus building a joint learning community.

We incubate and develop innovative, interdisciplinary learning activities and solutions, aimed at sharing knowledge, exchanging best practices and experiences and broadening our learning horizons.

Spotin is comprised of us; people who wish to meet, engage, collaborate. Together, we co-create and we co-deliver. Small innovations co-constructed by society for the society.
