Is my practice eligible for inclusion on this platform?

We would like to post any activity that an organisation undertakes that affects outcomes for children. These may include policies, regulations, programmes, and other strategies. If your practice meets these criteria and has been implemented in the European Union, please submit it here to share what you are doing with others!

Will my practice be included in the Evidence Based Practices?

If your practice has been evaluated, please also complete the ‘evaluation references’ field below, and your practice will automatically be considered for inclusion in the Evidence-Based Practice section. Your practice will be reviewed for inclusion in the section according to our evidence review criteria.

How do I submit my practice to the Social Innovation Repository or User Registry?

In order to submit your practice, please fill out all of the fields below and hit 'submit'. You will receive an email confirming that we have received your submission. Our review team will review the submission for appropriateness and completeness, and will post either on the Social Innovation Repository or Practice User Registry within four weeks. If you have any questions about the submission form, please contact us at EMPL-EPIC@ec.europa.eu.

How do I update my practice entry with information on new evaluations?

Users are also encouraged to notify us when a new evaluation is completed for a practice that is already listed in this user registry. We hope you will let us know by sending email to EMPL-EPIC@ec.europa.eu, and we will review the new evaluation to assess whether it needs to be included in the Evidence-Based Practice section.
