Objectives and results

The objectives of the action:
1) To investigate and compare fruitful frameworks for social enterprises in Macedonia within the frames of the existing active labour market programmes across the European Union to build a strong pillar for development of social entrepreneurship in Macedonia;
2) To transfer know-how about design and implementation of support measures for the development of social entrepreneurship between Macedonian partners and the European Centre;
3) To jointly propose a set of policy tools based on international practice that can enhance the capacity of regions and municipalities to support social enterprises for inclusion of disadvantaged groups.

Expected results:
1. A written report co-authored by PUBLIC and complemented by expertise of European Centre, with a strong policy focus;
