"Together to create new growth: Promoting Social entrepreneurship in Europe" conference

18 November 2011

Social businesses help to strengthen the real economy, while contributing to social cohesion, employability and the reduction of geographical imbalances.

The conference discussed adequate policy-making to help develop social entrepreneurship in the European Union and thus materialise the Commission commitment taken under the Single Market Act on 13 April 2011 (with a special focus on lever 8: social entrepreneurship).
