CALLS - Calls for partners
Location - EU Member States; Iceland and Norway in accordance with the EEA Agreement; Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.
Objective: This call aims at mobilising existing network(s) of mainstream business incubators to expand their outreach to inclusive and social entrepreneurship. To achieve this, the supported action shall draw from the experience of support organisations and networks already targeting social entrepreneurs and (potential) entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups. Optimally, this will be combined with support for scaling and replication of social enterprise and social innovation business ideas through dissemination of knowledge and understanding of potential market opportunities in other territories. This type of knowledge transfer can be ensured by involving pertinent partners as co-applicants and/or by qualified experts directly involved in the project implementation.
As a whole, the supported project shall cover both inclusive and social entrepreneurship in a balanced way. However, some activities can be specific to one of the two concepts or even specific to one of the target groups. Initiatives by public authorities (European, national, local/regional) shall be taken appropriately into account, looking after synergies and overall reinforcement of inclusive and social entrepreneurship efforts.
If interested, kindly fill in the e-form to submit your call for proposals. Due to the high number of expressions of interest, we inform you that we will not be able to respond to all the potential partners, although we will go through all the expressions of interest.
