The role of local partnership and clusters to foster social impact ecosystems

How can local partnerships and clusters foster social impact ecosystems? Starting from the local experience of Torino Social Impact we will broaden the focus on European experiences, considering the essential tools and steps involved in the development of such ecosystems. What kind of value do they add in strengthening a social impact oriented economy? What is the role of the European Commission in supporting these local initiatives?

On Tuesday June 23rd, during a live streaming on Facebook, we will discuss the current situation and future projects with:

  • Raffaella Scalisi, Senior Advisor, Torino Social Impact
  • Coos Santing, Program Manager, ImpactCity The Hague
  • Karel Vanderpoorten, Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, EU Commission
  • Mario Calderini, Full Professor, Politecnico di Milano

Hosted by Marco Zappalorto, CEO Nesta Italia. You can sign up to the event here.

The talk will be held in English.
