The European Social Innovation Campus (ESIC) contributes to the challenge of the upskilling and reskilling of 5% of the workforce and entrepreneurs of the sector each year to tackle the green and digital transitions in the social economy by boosting social innovation capacities. ESIC brings together higher education and vocational education and training, social economy organizations and enterprises from several European countries as well as European level actors. Drawing on evidence regarding the skills needs of occupational profiles, ESIC boosts the provision of new skills and addresses skills mismatches by creating a new general core curriculum for the social economy.

ESIC designs and delivers transnational education and training content, as well as co-produce teaching and training methodologies for quick uptake of the contents at regional and local levels and for emerging occupational profiles. In addition, the project will establish a strong communication and dissemination network, promoting the social economy sector as a career choice and supporting the development of a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mind-sets in the EU.
