Introduction

Info and documentation about the ongoing work of the GECES Working group on social economy clusters and other forms of collaboration

In a first year, this work focussed on clusters solely by investigating to what extend social enterprises are engaged in traditional clusters or form their own ‘social economy clusters’ and which characteristics could we identify.

Traditional Clusters are groups of specialised enterprises, often SME's, and other related supporting actors in a location that cooperate closely.

Together, SME's can be more innovative, create more jobs, and register more international trademarks and patents than alone.

The working group developed on the basis of their activities the concept Clusters of social and ecological innovation.

These can be defined as:

Groups of social economy enterprises and other related supporting actors that cooperate in a particular location to improve the role of social economy enterprises in economic development and increase the social and ecologic impact of its members by enhancing their cooperation, pooling resources and innovation capacity.

Output of the GECES working group

Here you find the most report of the GECES Working Group on Clusters of Social and Ecological Innovation (Due for December 2020).

This report aims at exploring Clusters of social and ecological innovation (CSEI) contributions to foster innovation in the European Union, in light of the socio-ecological transition. Social economy enterprises aim at improving local communities and society in general.

Next to the report, you will also find an overview of cases that were collected across Europe.

The report is still under construction. A first draft will be shared will be shared with GECES members. A final version with thematic approaches will be finished by December 2020 and presented during the Mannheim Summit.
