News - 17th december 2021
On the 9th December 2021, the European Commission adopted the new Action Plan for the Social Economy.
With the Action Plan, the Commission proposed concrete measures to help develop the full potential of the social economy in Europe, building on the results of the 2011 Social Business Initiative and 2016 Start-up and Scale-up Initiative.
The document was influenced by the article Social-Tech Entrepreneurs: Building Blocks of a New Social Economy (2021), published in Stanford Social Innovation Review, a work of Mario Calderini, Tiresia’s director, the researchers Veronica Chiodo and Francesco Gerli, and Giulio Pasi, Scientific Officer of the European Commission.
The document highlights the contribution of Tiresia’s researchers in the section on strategies to maximise the potential of the social economy for the green and digital transition, identifying the social economy as an actor capable of promoting a more equitable and inclusive digital transition.
