Transnational partners meeting in Ljubljana

19th – 20th May 2022

The SEED partnership met in Ljubljana after one year from the beginning of the project to share and discuss together about the status of the project for the establishment of the four Competence Centres (CCs) for Social Innovation in Greece, Italy, Romania and Slovenia.

The main topics of exchange were the national processes of co-design of the Competence Centres, involving both the national ESF managing authorities and the ecosystems of stakeholders, as well as the implementation of national pilot projects to test potential services to be offered by the CCs.

The partnership also worked on the capacity building programme that will be delivered from September 2022 both online for an international audience, and at national level in the four participating Countries with sessions in local languages.

The meeting, organised with the support of the Slovenian Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, was also the occasion to visit the business incubator Katapult in Trbovlje, an example of how a local community has been revitalised through the establishment of an organisation offering opportunities to young and creative people and entrepreneurs.
