The project “Investing in Impact” (3i) has started! The project is funded by Erasmus + programme.

   The social and solidarity economy represents a niche of activity without scale in the countries of the European Economic Space, especially in Romania.

The estimations show the majority of the actors from the business environment know very little about the concepts of social economy and social entrepreneurship.

So we determined an absolute necessity to get ourselves involved in the field of training the social entrepreneurs, while being aware of the benefits generated by applying the social economy systems, in regards to increasing the living standards for the disadvantaged communities.

The objectives of the “Investing in Impact” project are:

  •  The acquiring of social entrepreneurship competencies for 36 leaders and youth workers, employers and entrepreneurs from 10 countries (Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Greece and Turkey), through organizing an international training in Arad, Romania, during the period 14th- 18th of June 2016.
  •  The development of a collaborative network for the 18 partner organizations of the projects, through the networking workshops organized within the international training, which will take place in Arad, Romania for 5 days, with the attendance of 36 leaders and youth workers, employers and entrepreneurs from Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Greece and Turkey.
  •  The development of a business plan, adapted for the social enterprises, as a result of the workshops organized at the international training, which will take place in Arad, for 5 days, with the direct involvement of 36 leaders and youth workers, employers and entrepreneurs from Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Greece and Turkey.

In the international training, the participants in the project are 36 leaders and youth workers, employers and entrepreneurs, members of 18 org. from 10 countries.
