Incubators (business support organisations) for inclusive and social entrepreneurship: a call for proposals launched by the European Commission

Submitted by Alina Danieles… on 14 April 2020

The European Commission – under the Programme for Employment and Social Innovation "EaSI" 2014-20202 - launched a call aiming at mobilising existing network(s) of mainstream business incubators to expand their outreach to inclusive and social entrepreneurship. Through a series of activities such as the production and diffusion of relevant information materials; study visits and exchange of good practices; trainings, webinars, seminars, conferences, etc; awareness and dissemination actions, the funded action is expected to:

  • mobilise as many individual member incubators of the network(s) as possible to integrate inclusive and social entrepreneurship systematically in their service offer;
  • have a lasting spill-over effect in terms of wider attention paid to the issues of inclusive and social entrepreneurship in the countries directly involved and possibly beyond these countries.

The total available budget is estimated at €1,300,000. The EU grant requested should indicatively be between €1,000,000 and €1,300,000, with a co-financing rate of 80% of the total eligible costs of the action. The deadline for application is the 25th of May 2020.  More information is available at this page. © European Union, 1995-2020.
