The ENSIE’s Board of Directors gathered for a meeting in Girona on the 14th of February. The Board of Directors exchanged some member’s news, talked about the ENSIE’s staff and discuss the year ahead for the ongoing projects (EaSI, INNO-WISEs, Buying for Social Impact and Right2Grow). The members of the Board also made an inventory of the network’s activities and prepared the next ENSIE’s meeting. On the 15th of February, the International conference “Work Integration, Future Challenges” organised by FEICAT and ENSIE was held in Girona. At the agenda, The Catalan Region and the City Council of Barcelona both proposed interesting and innovative presentations on the inclusion of disadvantaged people through work, the match between unemployed people and integration enterprises and responsible public procurement.
We would like to thank the Catalan network and its vice-president, Mrs Güell for their warm welcome. We also thank Mr. Anton Costas, Professor of Economic Policy, for his historical presentations, full of reflection and new ideas on work as an effective tool for progress and equity.
Once again, ENSIE would like to thank FEICAT and its members of the Board of Directors for these two inspiring and full of innovation working days.
