In Situ Project Update

Remember the ‘new’ EU Project: In Situ?

Well it has been running for almost a year and there are some exciting updates.

What do we do, What do we want?

  • Our goal is to foster inclusiveness within the world of Social Entrepreneurship.
  • Our target groups are socioeconomically disadvantaged youth and long-​term-unemployed adults

These are groups that all too often are perceived as passive receivers of social innovations – we want to create opportunities for them to become solution co-​creators.

Our IN SITU VIENNA mission is:

To foster positive societal impact and make Social Entrepreneurship more inclusive by creating spaces of inspiration and empowerment where every citizen – disregarding their background – is seen as a co-​creator, rather than target, of social innovation.

We connected to many important stakeholder in the social innovation/entrepreneurship scene and had a great Roundtable/Networking Event in February. Now we are working on a great workshop methodology-to be implemented in September (2020). Our IN SITU team will offer workshop series free of cost, in which participants will get a chance to discover the potential of their ideas, expand their creative social thinking as well as business-​planning skills, and develop their own social projects.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Laura via mail: lhohoff@wu.ac.at

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,  Laura Hohoff: lhohoff@wu.ac.at is responsilbe for the project management.

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