Ninth report on projects and organisations funded by EaSI

This ninth edition presents 23 projects aimed at

  • supporting reforms of national social protection systems, 
  • enhancing administrative co-operation on posting of workers, and
  • raising awareness on how young people can benefit from the Youth Guarantee.

In addition, it also presents EaSI-supported activities implemented in 2017 by 19 major EU-level Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) active in the promotion of social inclusion, poverty reduction and access to finance.

Their work is to support the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights, as well as the Europe 2020 Strategy, the Social Investment Package and the Political Guidelines of the Commission.

In addition, they contributed to the main EU governance processes such as the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) on social protection and social inclusion and the European Semester.
