The project "Social entrepreneurship and educational practices for young people (SE+ED)" has been  co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the EC, under the Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships for youth. 
The project N is 2016-2-EL02-KA205-002486.

The last decade, two unexpected things happened in Europe: a financial crisis and a significant rising of unemployment. These forced economy to a new type of entrepreneurship, the social entrepreneurship. The social entrepreneurship was the answer to the new needs that widely appeared. 

Our project stems from the social entrepreneurship tradition but at the same time offers a new perspective bringing together five different countries (Austria, Portugal, Poland, UK, Greece) with different cultures and different needs. The SE+ED project sets up collaboration between alternative institutions (two Universities, two NGOs and an enterprise).

The aim of the project is the methodological and educational training on social entrepreneurship. Twenty five young people, from five different countries and institutions participated. The social entrepreneurship was the focus of the SE+ED project.

Project objectives:

  • An intensive training of young participants
  • Setting up a portal and a forum
  • A presentation of different applications of social entrepreneurship
  • Publishing an e-book
  • Uploading webinars
  • A dissemination of project’s result in an international conference with broader participation
  • An evaluation by the young people of the project and of the beneficiaries of social enterprise applications
  • A sense of community and sharing between European citizens.

​All Participating organizations contributed to the project schedule, either by hosting some of the actions (preparatory meeting, conference) or during the training course.
