More social investment to fight social inequality

2015.06.16

The European Commission's "Social Investment Package" that was launched in 2013 focuses on the importance of social investment in the welfare reform. This highlights the usefulness of social policies to strengthen current and future capabilities of people and at the same time to get them ready to face life, instead of just counteracting the consequences of inequality.

InnoSI, a 30-month initiative that is funded by the European Commission, involves a group of European universities and NGOs, led by Manchester Metropolitan University, to analyse how innovative social investment policies can strengthen communities of interest in Europe, and thus improve social capital and cohesion.

TECNALIA is taking part in this initiative as an "impact partner" and will be in charge of dissemination and awareness raising amongst lawmakers and social policy creators. The experiences of people all over Europe who benefit from social policies are essential in this initiative. As part of the project, the aim is to gather around 100 reporters from different communities of interest across Europe, and train them so they can inform the general public about the experiences of their communities.

About a third of the 2.5 million euros that are being invested in this initiative will be used to ensure that the policy makers in Europe get involved in the results of this research. The initiative will also try to get the research to have a real impact on the lives of people in Europe.
