TOOLKIT ON ENGAGING IN THE EUROPEAN SEMESTER AND EUROPE 2020 STRATEGY - 2017

This toolkit was created by ENSIE team to support its members in engaging within the European Semester process in the framework of the EU2020 strategy. It helps understanding the different steps of the Semester process and where and when national and regional organisations are able to intervene and give relevant outputs linked to the work integration social enterprises objectives.
In particular, the toolkit explains different mechanisms, especially, the annual growth survey, the country specific recommendations and the national reforms programmes. It identifies the opportunities to engage and lists the relevant contact points for our national member organisations.
The ENSIE’s team remains available for any further inputs concerning the whole approach.

ANALYSIS ON NATIONAL COUNTRY SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS - 2017

The country-specific recommendations, as tailored policy guidance to Member States, are one of the key products under the European Semester. This year, the team created again a summary document for each country where the network has a member in order to tackle topics such as social economy, unemployment and inclusion of disadvantaged groups in the policy framework of the different states of our Members.
