Key assignments

KOYS Lab is involved in several Research and Innovation initiatives

“New technologies and digitization: opportunities and challenges for the social economy and social entrepreneurship”

The study is set out to examine, benchmark and diffuse initiatives and social policy innovation practices, necessary for promoting a successful approach to the social economy and social enterprises. The raison d’être is to explore opportunities and challenges that digital technologies pose for the social economy and social enterprises and obtain a better understanding of the ways in which the design and implementation of EU and national policies and initiatives can support the digitisation and uptake of novel digital technologies for the social economy and by social economy enterprises.
