Call for proposals for social policy experimentations supporting social investments
Deadline for submitting proposals: 16/12/2013
The present call focuses on the methodological aspects of the different phases of social policy innovations, policy reforms or policy adaptations. Consequently, particular attention should be given to the evaluation and dissemination. This approach is consistent with the emphasis on good governance of the European Union, the increased need to ensure quality of public spending while responding to citizens' needs and expectations. This is reflected by the principle - from both a social and budgetary perspective - that the impact, adequacy and effectiveness of social reforms should be tested before their generalisation.
