Mid-term meeting of SENBS project in Poland

Project SENBS is already halfway through its implementation period! It was not easy to run the project fully during the COVID times but despite all the challenges we managed to organise a hybrid mid-term meeting in Gdansk on 24 and 25th Jan 2022 with our Partners coming from Estonia, Denmark, Lithuania and Latvia.

Those who could join us here in Gdansk, others were present online and we all managed to talk about the previous achievements and future plans. It was also great to hear that the project mid-term report was accepted with no comments or necessary improvements!

BISER also confirmed, that we already applied for the continuation of our project to Polish Erasmus+ Agency, we will have the results soon to share with our partners. and hopefully, we will be able to continue in fall 2022 with a new GREEN SENBS project focusing on green and sustainable social entrepreneurship in the Baltic Sea Region.

SENBS is a project that allows informing, educating and empowering social entrepreneurs and local, national and regional stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region. But even more so, it is a part of a long-standing initiative that revolves around building the capacity of this rich resource – www.socialenterprisebsr.net e-platform. SIC has been a part of it since the very beginning in 2014, and we are happy to highlight this as one of the good practice examples for a sustainable project outcome because since then it has been actively updated to include the most recent information. With that said, one of the goals of the next months in the SENBS project is understanding the future of this site – the potential development and improvement scenarios, as well as continuous collaboration strategies.

Partner organizations involved in the project are:

Involved NGO (Estonia)

Stowarzyszenie “Baltycki instytut Spraw Europejskich I Regionalnych” – BISER (Poland)

Sociale Entreprenorer i Denmark (Denmark)

Socialiniu Investiciju Fondas (Lithuania)

Socialas Inovacijas centrs (Latvia)
