The international conference “Unlocking the potential of the social economy for EU growth” was dedicated to the consideration of the role of the social economy for European growth, and represented one of the biggest summits on the theme in Europe. 

More than 190 speakers from 25 European countries – social economy practitioners, stakeholders, policy-makers, scholars and experts (as well as all of those who are interested in helping the Social Economy fulfill its potential) –discussed the key issues affecting the development of the Social Economy in Europe. From this and the 12 parallel thematic sessions examining specific topics, such as policy support at National and European level, financial instruments and intermediaries or collaboration with the public sector, a strategy document has been developed (find the document at http://socialeconomyrome.it/ ).

In the framework of the organisation of the Conference a public consultation was opened in the previous months in order to facilitate dialog and debate in a transparent and participatory way. Carlo Borzaga e Gianluca Salvatori, respectively Euricse president and CEO, participated in the evaluation of proposals as members of the committee of experts.
