The largest support and capacity-building programme in Europe for social enterprises – SocialTech4EU – is looking for training providers, higher education institutions, research organisations, tech providers, incubators, and accelerators to become part of the Registry of Social Economy Stakeholders and Providers, which social enterprises selected by the project will consult to support their twin transition.
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 journey 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. Therefore, SocialTech4EU is inviting training providers, universities, other organizations active in the field of higher education, and research organisations, tech providers, acceleration and incubation services to join the Registry.
The Registry – which will be a virtual map – will be used by selected social enterprises, cluster organizations and networks, participating in the SocialTech4EU project to identify and purchase training, innovation and acceleration services, via financial support awarded to them by the project. The 100 selected social enterprises will identify the trainings they need and pick and choose from the registry according to what suits their needs best.
Why would you join the registry?
Well, there are several advantages: your revenues will increase due to the services provided, joining the registry offers a broad range of networking and collaboration opportunities, you can connect with EU social enterprises and other stakeholders and learn how to cooperate with social enterprises through an open innovation, project-based approach.
