The project has a duration of 24 months (from May 2021 to April 2023). During this time, BuiCaSuS promotes the exchange of concepts and social innovation practices at both national and European level. The European Social Fund (2021-27) has reinforced its programming now requiring the structures at the level of all EU Member States to accompany, promote and evaluate social innovation ecosystems.
The project includes partners from Spain (as Lead Applicant), Latvia, France and Sweden with diverse profiles that go from ministries to NGOs. It is one of the six consortia selected by the European Commission to explore how social innovation contributes to the creation of more sustainable societies.
The Spanish Ministry of Social Rights and Agenda 2030 coordinates one of six consortia at a European level. The goal is to promote social innovation ecosystems. The project is funded by the European Commission through the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI). It consists of seven partners from four countries and it features the participation of more than 20 organisations.
