José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the award ceremony of the European Social Innovation Prize in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos.
The winning projects (Community Catalysts, Economy App and Mitwin.net) aimed to reduce youth employment by sharing jobs among young and older employees, to extend the reach and quality of small-scale social care and health services via an app, and to improve access to the job market for economically deprived by making their skills widely visible.
To boost social innovation, the EC launched the Social Innovation Competition in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos on the 1 October 2012. Europeans were invited to develop solutions for creating new opportunities for work, and for better work. Over 600 proposals were received out of which three were awarded with a prize of €20,000.
