The new project at the RCE!

 

In Situ

The IN SITU (Intergenerational Social Innovation Support Scheme) project focuses on socio-economic and demographic challenges. The main focus is on the long-term unemployed and young people with inadequate qualifications. The project aims to bring these young people together with jobseekers over 50 years of age so that both generations can exchange experiences and compensate for each other’s lack of skills.

In order to meet the specific needs in the partner regions, the project consortium will formulate a strategy for the development and promotion of intergenerational social innovation. On this basis and through intensive training and mentoring programmes, companies and initiatives with a social focus are to emerge – for and with those affected. The main actors are supporters and organisations, experts in the field of entrepreneurship and social innovation as well as public and private funding initiatives. The duration of the project is three years and the funding amount is 2,418,720 euros.

The project is managed by the European Office in Vienna, which was also the lead partner in the previous project CERIecon (Central Europe Regional Innovation Ecosystems Network). Partners from Veneto/Italy, Rijeka/Croatia, Dąbrowa Górnicza/Poland and Maribor/Slovenia and Stuttgart/Germany are also involved. RCE’s regional cooperation partner is the European Office.

Christian Rammel is responsible for project coordination at RCE: crammel@wu.ac.at

This project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE programme co-financed by the ERDF.
