Project: INNO-WISEs – Technologies, Competences and Social Innovation for Work Integration Social Enterprises
Timeline: July 2017 – June 2020
Project budget: 2.309.368,00 EUR
The INNO-WISEs project has been tackling weaknesses of the Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) by improving their capacity to offer qualified jobs to disadvantaged groups, hence contributing to greater social cohesion. Through the implementation of an integrated approach (tackling all development needs of the sector from technology gaps to skills shortages), and through the production of specific outputs for the WISE sector (including a knowledge management framework, a flexible ICT platform (http://www.wisebusiness.eu), training programmes etc.), the project was significantly changing the entrepreneurial mind-set, skills and attitude of the sector by building and promoting a stronger culture of entrepreneurship and greater social innovation capacities.
