SO 1.2

Social Innovation

To increase the quality and the effectiveness of service delivery to the most socially and economically disadvantaged groups through social innovation.

The preparatory phase for the programme pinpointed the challenges that the programme will address:

  • Need to support the development of innovative solutions to address the societal challenges faced by the most socially and economically disadvantaged groups
  • Need to enable the active population to play their part in economic revitalisation, including by enhancing skills through innovative training/retraining.

The programme will therefore use cross-border cooperation to develop new systems and services to support those furthest from the labour market and the ageing population through social innovation. Social innovation is an opportunity to find solutions to address unemployment, poverty and social exclusion at a cross-border level.
