ERRIN and two of its members, Government of Navarra and East and North Finland, together with Social Economy Europe, are organising an event during the EU Industry Day with the aim to analyse how to combine the efforts of S3 and the social economy to optimise efforts in achieving smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. In detail, the workshop will explore the potential and demand for improving linkages and networks between different regions who are seeking to optimise their innovation potential through combining S3 and the social economy.

Most importantly, social economy organisations will be invited to share examples of current practice in this area and to explore future potential for joining efforts through, for example, engaging in innovation-driven, inter-regional projects, and thematic platforms. 
 
 During the workshop the following topics will be covered: 

  • How to develop social economy clusters
  • How to create European value chains of social economy enterprises belonging to different regions in Europe, and improve the cooperation between them
  • How can S3 act as a link between social economy enterprises all over Europe 

Registration is open until 8th February at the following link: https://www.eu-industryday2018.eu/en/registration
