Publication date:


The brochure 'Social Innovation: inspirational practices supporting people throughout their lives' presents 27 examples of social innovation initiatives across the European Union, one from each Member State. It highlights the diversity and success of social innovations in Europe, showcasing initiatives that facilitate transitions, integrate disadvantaged groups, redesign business models, empower people, build partnerships and deliver public policies, in new and creative ways. Innovators include NGOs, social enterprises, local, regional and national authorities, social partners and the private sector, often working in partnership to improve people’s lives. The brochure aims to raise awareness of the significant positive impact that such innovations can have on people and communities. Its goal is to inform Member States, organisations and other actors about existing good practices on social innovation, facilitating learning exchange and transnational cooperation, particularly in the context of the future European Social Fund Plus.
