Advancing Social Innovation in Europe

Join our transnational workshop series to discuss pressing issues and exchange with social entrepreneurs, policymakers and important stakeholders of the ecosystem. Each workshop will start with a short impulse input by an expert on the topic. After that, we will discuss urgent matters and possible measures to foster policy and collaboration for social entrepreneurship and social innovation in Europe. 

The outcomes of the workshops will contribute to the definition of a transnational strategy on supporting Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship in Central Europe.
