The SocialTech4EU, as the largest support and capacity building programme in Europe for social enterprises, is embarking on an exciting journey with social enterprises and other stakeholders. The project will offer an innovation pathway to selected social enterprises, giving them the opportunity to truly develop their innovative ideas.
The project has been gathering input on the needs and blockers of social enterprises, hampering them to innovate and fully partake in the twin transition. The next step will be all about training. Social enterprises will be able to apply for the training support and training providers will be invited to join their innovation pathway. In the first place the call is open to social enterprises but is also aiming at for-profit/start ups with a social mission- or impact. Selected social enterprises will receive 3000 EUR (lumpsum) to get training on areas such as ICT, open innovation, business administration and marketing. The selected social enterprises will be able to select from a registry consisting of national, European and international training providers, higher education institutions, research organisations, tech providers, incubators and accelerators.
This call is the first step of the innovation pathway of SocialTech4EU. Selected organizations will be able to possibly start their innovation journey, make use of training opportunities but also scale up and accelerate their innovation efforts. Future financial support will follow in 2023 and 2024 and social enterprises will be able to apply and compete for additional financial support:
