European Social Innovation Competition, apply before 21th December

28 November 2012 [ English ] français ]

European Commission has launched a competition to find the best social innovation solutions to help people move towards work or into new types of work. A maximun of three best proposals will each be awarded with a prize of 20,000 euros in May 2013. CECOP encourages the enterprises of its network to apply; the deadline is on 21th December.

Over 25 million Europeans are out of work. On top of that, many people are stuck in low-paid jobs or sense that they have few opportunities on the job market – sometimes because of their gender, age or a handicap. This Competition, launched by the European Commission in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos, invites any European to come up with new solutions to create new opportunities for work, and for better work.
