In the past decades in the European Union those social enterprises got into the focus of attention that combine business and social aspects in their operation, contribute to social cohesion, integration and solidarity as well as local employment.
While in 2010 in the European Union 6,5% of the economically active population worked in social economy, in Hungary 4,7% and in Croatia only 0,6% of the employees found a job in the sector. This is partly caused by the fact that managers and employees of the social enterprises lack the necessary skills, competences and special knowledge necessary for effective operation in social economy. Furthermore there are no domestic or cross-border relations and knowledge transfer between the different organizations operating in the field of social economy and they do not have international perspective either. The partnership engaged in adult education and organization development has designed the project proposal as a resolution for these problems
Their objective is to identify the resources and potentials of social economy sector in the border region, get a general idea about the operation and development needs of social enterprises and following a situation analysis to jointly develop the training curriculum for ‘Managing social enterprises’ training.
This project has been implemented with the financial assistance of the European Union within the Hungary-Croatia Interreg V-A Co-operation Programme.
