Our principal activities in 2013-14 financial year were spread across 4 themes: social innovation; social entrepreneurship; research & development and leadership.

Social Innovation in Europe
- The European Social Innovation Competition has grown from a pilot competition undertaken at the initiative of Euclid Network in 2011. Its focus was on raising awareness of innovative initiatives to tackle unemployment, especially youth unemployment, across Europe. EN was a driving force in the delivery of the competition, from the launch event, through the call for entries, to the evaluation and the delivery of a Social Academy for the 30 semi-finalists.
- Social Innovation Europe is an official European Commission website run by a partnership of Euclid Network and Social Innovation Exchange (SIX). Euclid animated and managed this interactive web-based networking and resource "hub" which includes an underlying searchable database.

Social entrepreneurship in Europe
- Euclid Network is in its fifth year of leading a Europe-wide consortium (Social Entrepreneur Exchange & Development) which facilitates placements of new/emerging social entrepreneurs with experienced social entrepreneurs, funded by the European Commission. In 2013-14 the consortium helped to organise 45 matches.
- Erasmus MED is a new project that was launched in February 2014 and aims to expand opportunities for exchanges among social entrepreneurs to the Mediterranean countries.

Civil society engagement in research & development
- “Civil Society Organisations in Designing Research Governance” (CONSIDER) is a European project, which aims to develop guidelines for a stronger engagement of civil society organisations in research & development. The project prepared a series of case studies of EU FP7 research projects to identify those involving CSOs so as to better understand barriers and enabling factors in CSO engagement. Euclid Network organised several workshops to present the ongoing work and raised awareness of the project through its Europe-wide network.
- Responsible Industry is a new project launched in February 2014 and aims to investigate civil society engagement in research & development in the area of ICT for ageing, health and well-being.

Leadership in civil society

Further, Euclid Network works together with national government and international institutions in order to have social innovation and social enterprise at the core of the European agenda. During the last year, Euclid contributed to consultation launched at European and national level, as well as Expert groups and the European Commission’s Structured Dialogue group, through which civil society organisations make recommendations to the European Commission. Euclid also responded to the Balance of Competence Review, promoted by the UK Government.

Euclid Network runs a number of communication and dissemination activities including, the e-newsletter, website, google groups, Euclid Network TV. Euclid Network is also very active on social media and with journalists at local, national and international level.
