The objective of the activities to be funded by this call for proposals is to contribute to the availability of reliable statistics on social enterprises at national and European levels and to identify countries interested in collecting this information.

The aim is to provide policy-makers and relevant stakeholders for credible, comparable and systematic information and indicators on the role of the social enterprises in national economies and to offer usable and practical information to stakeholders for their decision making.

Therefore the Commission wishes to encourage national statistical offices in the Participating Countries under the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) to collect this information.
