Knowledge Sharing is one of the main tasks of the European Competence Center for Social Innovation established. Under this work stream the Centre organizes transnational exchange and cooperation through knowledge sharing, mutual learning, and capacity building for social innovation stakeholders. This includes Comunities of Practice on the following issues: Employment, Education and Skills, Social Inclusion, Social Innovation, Migrant Integration, Material Support. The Centre functions as a knowledge hub of social innovation, notably with a view of creating enabling conditions for transfer of good practice and scaling up of tested social innovations.
Furthermore, the Centre supports the work of the ALMA network and the EU Roma network.
The Communities of Practice and networks drive transnational cooperation between ESF+ bodies, support structures, such as the National Competence Centres for Social Innovation and EaSI contact points, and other relevant social innovation stakeholders.
