Creating value together - Towards business partnerships between social economy and traditional enterprises03/07/2018
Social economy enterprises and traditional, for-profit enterprises collaborate in many ways. Together, they can co-create value for both partners and become a real source of jobs and social impact in Europe. Yet, the potential of value creation through collaboration between these two types of enterprises is not fully exploited.
This international development lab builds further on an earlier Entrepreneurial Discovery Focus Group targeting the wine and vineyard value chain.
The first meeting of the Working Group is organised as part of the Stairway to Excellence project, managed by JRC in close cooperation with DG REGIO, and seeks to maximise the impact of Smart Specialisation Strategies in EU regions and member states, and to realise the full potential of using EU funding programmes managed at regional, national and EU levels.
The event introduced the JRC project “Targeted Support to RIS3 in Lagging Regions” to the research, innovation and business communities and regional government authorities in Debrecen and discussed the role of the S3P Thematic Platforms on Industrial Modernisation, Energy and Agri-food in developing inter-regional partnerships.
The Working Committee consists of all regions participating in Agri-food thematic partnerships and as a result, this Working Committee Meeting in Seinajoki brough together the European Commission services and representatives of all Agri-Food thematic partnerships. Over 50 regional stakeholders discussed the implementation of the Platform's activities while focusing on practical and methodological ways to resolve current and potential issues, and provide strategic guidance. This meeting took place in Seinajoki, Finland on 11th June 2018.
Experienced practitioners from the national and regional level will provide insightful feedback of their S3 implementation experience to date and will reflect together on better RIS3 design for the upcoming programming period

The EUSEW policy Conference is the EU conference of reference addressing energy transformation and policy developments.
This conference will show how regional partnerships including universities and other higher education institutions can drive smart specialisation. It is the result of two related projects: Higher Education for Smart Specialisation (HESS), managed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in cooperation with DG Education and Culture, and Thinking Smart, an Erasmus+ funded consortium of European HEIs.
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has been working on the topic of social economy enterprises for the past decade and a dedicated permanent study group has been created in 2016. In view of the success of the European Day of social economy enterprises in 2016 and 2017, it was proposed to organise a 3rd edition of this event.
