GUIDE TO SOCIAL INNOVATION – A NEW REPORT FROM DG REGIO

Guide to Social InnovationFaced with pressing societal challenges such as high unemployment and an ageing population, Europe is increasingly turning towards social innovation as a source of new solutions.  It is therefore a sign of the times that for 2014-2020 social innovation has been explicitly integrated into the Structural Funds Regulations, offering further possibilities to Member States and regions to invest in social innovation both through the ERDF and the ESF. The report offers guidelines as to how public authorities can support social innovation and includes a good number of inspiring examples of social innovation in practice.
The report can be accessed at: http://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/sources/docgener/presenta/social_innovation/social_innovation_2013.pdf
