ESF+ towards a more Inclusive and Fairer Social Economy

June 15, 2020


Policy Brief

The European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) will support investments in the social future of Europe from 2021 to 2027, as part of the next long-term EU budget. Social economy actors, including social investors and venture philanthropists, can play a key role in achieving several of the ESF+ objectives by providing capital and innovative approaches to different social issues. This fact is acknowledged by the European Commission, and thus, the ESF+ will dedicate part of its funds to the development of the social economy and the social investment ecosystem in the member states.

Webinar Recording

On 30th April 2020, EVPA hosted a free webinar on the ESF+, which will support investments in the social future of Europe from 2021 to 2027.

During this webinar, we found out how the ESF+ will work, which role the EU Member States can play, and how the resources can help to boost the social economy across the European Union. Moreover, we heard how the ESF+ will differentiate from its long-standing predecessor ESF, and what were the lessons learnt from the past in order to face the challenges lying ahead.
