BuiCaSuS is dedicated to strengthening support structures for better social innovation ecosystems, such as National Competence Centres.
One of the workstreams of the consortium has been the mapping of the current situation of the social innovation panorama in all four partner countries. This was undertaken in early 2022 and has generated four country background papers. They had been widely contrasted by the respective actors at national level.
Based on these findings, the partners facilitated an experience exchange during the mid-term conference in October 2022 in Madrid. There, a specific session was held on the diagnostics and recommendations that emerged in the countries.
This report summarizes key findings of the reports and attempts to trace common issues that act as accelerators or bottlenecks to institutionalize the practice of social innovation at EU member state level.
