WILCO is a EU-funded project aiming to examine, through cross-national comparative research, how local welfare systems favour social cohesion. Special attention will be paid to the missing link between social innovations at the local level and their successful transfer and implementation to other settings.
TEPSIE is a research collaboration between six European institutions aimed at understanding the theoretical, empirical and policy foundations for developing the field of social innovation in Europe. The project explores the barriers to innovation, as well as the structures and resources that are required to support social innovation at the European level. The aim is to identify what works in terms of measuring and scaling innovation, engaging citizens and using online networks to maximum effect in order to assist policy makers, researchers and practitioners working in the field of social innovation.
InGRID project – Inclusive Growth Research Infrastructure Diffusion
InGRID is funded under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme (from 2013 to 2017) and involves 17 European partners. Referring to the EU2020-ambition of Inclusive Growth, the general objectives of InGRID are to integrate and to innovate existing European social sciences research infrastructures on ‘Poverty and Living Conditions’ and ‘Working Conditions and Vulnerability’ by providing transnational data access, organising mutual knowledge exchange activities and improving methods and tools for comparative research. This integration will provide the European scientific community with new and better opportunities to fulfil its key role in the development of evidence-based European policies for Inclusive Growth. In this regard specific attention is paid to a better measurement of related state policies, to high-performance statistical quality management, and to dissemination/outreach activities with the broader stakeholder community-of-interest, including European politics, civil society and statistical system. A better measurement and understanding of vulnerable groups is the common and shared expected impact of this integrated research infrastructure
