Call for Proposals VP/2010/014
p5: "PURPOSE OF THE CALL
The Call for proposals will be funded by Article 04 03 12 of the EU Budget – Pilot project – All-inclusive cooperation between public authorities, companies and social enterprises in favour of social inclusion and integration into the labour market.
The main purpose of this pilot project is to promote new models for cooperation between public institutions, companies and social enterprises, in order to bring about a more effective and coordinated approach, via the creation of specific partnerships.
This will allow the development of permanent spaces for dialogue and thus foster mutual understanding and promote good practice.
This should also contribute to:
— fostering greater awareness of the business world of corporate social responsibility particularly in local communities;
— propose effective solutions to the socio-economic problems suffered by each specific area and target group; and
— generate measurable results in terms of integration of vulnerable groups, with a particular attention to the integration of early school leavers and unemployed young people into society and the labour market.
The pilot project will be implemented in cooperation and taking benefit from synergies with some of the networks established under the PROGRESS Programme and the transnational dimension of the ESF (Learning Networks), as well as of the work undertaken through the PROGRESS programme on encouraging companies in their corporate social responsibility through local employment development.
