New publication on social policy innovation

The European Commission has published a short publication on social innovation policy. It looks at the EU’s role, why social policy innovation is important, and who is involved in the process.

The EU supports social policy innovation through their programmes such as the EaSI – (programme for employment and social innovation which brings together PROGRESS, EURES, and Progress Microfinance), the Social Investment Package in 2013, and the European Social Fund (ESF).

For the 2014-2020 programming period, social innovation can be supported in all areas falling under the scope of the ESF, including the aim of testing and scaling up innovative solutions.
