Registrations open for the ESF thematic workshop on Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Lisbon, 10 September 2019

Registrations are now open for the ‘Thematic workshop on Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship’. The workshop, which is the next event of the fi-compass ESF series, will take place in Lisbon on 10 September 2019.

The workshop is organised by fi-compass on behalf of the European Commission, Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) in partnership with the European Investment Bank. It aims to raise awareness among ESF managing authorities, financial intermediaries and stakeholders about the potential for financial instruments in support of social innovation and social entrepreneurship initiatives with a tangible, measurable impact. This topic, which has already gained relevance in the current programming period, is expected to have even more potential for financial instruments under the European Social Fund in the future.

The event will feature concrete case studies from Portugal and other EU Member States, presentations from European Commission and European Investment Bank experts as well as open discussions and interaction opportunities among participants.
