This paper builds on the idea that embedding social policies within innovation policies and vice versa is one of the main ways to put the might of academic research at the service of those at the bottom of the pyramid. The aim of the paper is to analyse systematically the problems that prevent research to fulfil the promise of modernity and progress for vast majorities of the world population and to propose ways to overcome such problems.
