European Support to Social Innovation

Objective

The four Regional Development Agencies, ERVET, ADA, KAINUUN ETU, IVACE operating in the North and in the South European Regions (Italy, Turkey, Finland, Spain), dealing with innovation support programmes, implementation of Structural Funds Regional Operative Programmes (ROP ESF, ERDF 2020) and experienced in social innovation policies and programs want to deepen their knowledge and find joint solutions to challenges hindering the development of social economy. Thus, they want to promote new approaches able to overcome a fragmented approach to policies supporting social economy and the innovation and competitiveness of social enterprises. A new policy mix, taking into consideration social, economic and environmental aspects (Agenda 2030), would be able to overcome “silos policies” and to create a favorable ecosystem for social enterprises. They will work together with regional public and private social economy stakeholders to analyze beneficiaries’ needs and promote new policies and actions. Already existing approaches and best practices will be shared in a mutual learning process among Regional Development Agencies, and related regions, that will be enlarged through EURADA and ERRIN networks for more effective and targeted regional and European innovation programs for social enterprises. Moreover, partners, accordingly with INNOSUP general scope, choose to focus on social innovation as it is “required at the interface between public services and private enterprises” with a view to jointly learn and discuss about public and private partnership and co-design approach
