The European Commission Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs Directorate General is launching a European Social Economy Regions 2018 pilot aiming at building effective networks of the social economy and social innovation stakeholders and raising awareness about the social economy at regional and local level. The pilot will bring together regional and local stakeholders, social economy enterprises, social innovators and policy-makers in order to promote added value and benefits of the social economy on the ground. Any public regional entity with links to social economy is invited to submit a proposal for organising a local event in close collaboration with regional stakeholders.
The submission period for expressions of interest is now open
The public regional entities are invited to submit their proposals to organise a regional event by 28 February 2018.
