European Week of Regions and Cities 2018: “Regions and cities for social innovation” regional partnership (11WS214)

Cohesion Policy meets Social Enterprises

Emilia-Romagna Region – Delegation to the EU, Rue Montoyer 21, Brussels

11 October 2018, 09:30 – 13:00

The aim of the workshop is to exchange and transfer knowledge on social economy between different regional actors. The session will discuss challenges that impact society and the role of regions, cities and social enterprises in addressing them. After a TEDx-style introduction to the EC’s Social Challenges Platform (follow #sochange for updates before, during and after the event), the workshop will focus on 4 pillars: (i) ecosystem for social innovation; (ii) financing structures and tools; (iii) access to market and internationalisation and (iv) skills and competences development.

Representatives from the EU, European regions and cities will set the policy framework, will evaluate strengths and weaknesses of the existing policy instruments and bring together experiences from different EU projects. This workshop will contribute to strengthen the dialogue between regions, cities and social economy stakeholders on opportunities and actions able to improve regional ecosystems and foster social economy.
