Dates: 16/17-02-2023. Place: Riga, Latvia. Venue: Pullman Rīga Old Town

This conference is a gathering point to reflect on the capacity building activities as well as to look beyond. A key topic on the agenda will be the reflection on the institutionalization of the CCSI Competence Centre for Social Innovation.

At that stage, the four policy proposals will be available. We are looking forward to inquiring into how social innovation will be nurtured in each of the respective countries.

We trust that the cold shores of the Baltic Sea help us find a horizon!
