The launch event for the second edition of the European Social Innovation Competition - Milan, 11 October 2013
On May 29th, the award of the three prizes by President Barroso concluded a very successful first edition of this Competition (refresh your memory). Successful for more reasons than one – it rewarded the winning projects but it also supported many more applicants drawing attention on social innovation, including from private investors.
It is now time to open the second edition of the Competition. You are invited to participate in the launch event which will take place in Milan on 11 October, in partnership with the UniCredit Foundation.
The second edition will keep the same focus – how social innovation provides, directly or indirectly, solutions for jobs – and will remain open to individuals and organisations. It will still include a strong coaching component to help the best ideas become real projects.
Details will be presented on the day but you can already get prepared, spread the news and of course follow us on Twitter (@EUSocialInnov #diogochallenge).
What difference can social innovation make for jobs? What role can social innovation play in Italy? We will discuss those topics and we want to hear your views.
