CEEIARAGON is currently working on the LIAISE project, implemented by EBN and funded by the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), and aims to equip Business Support Organizations (BSOs) to better serve social entrepreneurs in Europe.
The goal of LIAISE (Linking Incubation Actors for Inclusive and Social Entrepreneurship) is to bring about a paradigm shift in the European incubation ecosystem towards a more inclusive and impact-driven approach to innovative entrepreneurship. The ultimate goal is to drive an ecosystemic shift aimed at providing social entrepreneurs with dedicated business support services, incubation programs and networks that enable them to develop viable and sustainable businesses.
CEEIARAGON, participates in one of the 5 European Communities of Practice (CoP), created in this program, specifically in the Senior one. These 5 CoPs, throughout the project, will investigate best practices and jointly design new approaches in the field of social and inclusive entrepreneurship. To this end, they will seek to collect the most relevant past experiences - learnings, failures, good practices and achievements - in the field of inclusive entrepreneurship. In addition, the CoPs will monitor any active inclusive entrepreneurship programs during the implementation of the project (2021-2022), and these will serve as a pilot and test experience to validate the learning inputs coming from the CoP itself.
Finally, the LIAISE Project will explore policy dimensions and capitalize on the participatory process developed by the CoPs.
