Study visits & Working groups

What are the study visits?

The European Network of Innovation for Inclusion will organize a study visit per category to the winning entity of the annual call good practices. The finalists in the same category will be invited to participate in the study visit.

The purpose of the study visit is to learn by first-hand how the winner’s good practice is being implemented, and to analyse its transferability to other entities, so participants will be able to implement (or be inspired by) the good practice, in their organizations, and even give support to the entities in their countries deciding to implement this best practice.

For the winner of the good practices, it will be a reward for the work done and thus it will increase their possibilities of improving their implementation and collaborations at the European level.

The study visit will be open to the participation of all members of the European Network of Innovation for Inclusion showing interest in participating.

The network will cover all the expenses to attend the study visits for the three finalists under each category of the call good practices.

 

 

Why participate in the working groups?

Based on the interests, needs and challenges the members of the European Network of Innovation for Inclusion face, two annual working groups will be organized.

The European Network of Innovation for Inclusion will ask their members periodically about their interests, in order to tailor these working groups to their needs. These working groups will be organized under the two categories of the call of good practices (socio-labour inclusion and inclusive entrepreneurship), and finalists and winners of the call for good practices will be invited to participate. During these working groups:

  • The challenges, difficulties, and needs in the selected themes will be discussed.
  • Open calls for financing projects will be analysed.
  • Project ideas will be developed.

The project will cover all the expenses to attend the working groups for the three finalists under each category of the good practices.
