BiB participates in new Erasmus + Project

We are pleased to announce that we are in the process of implementing the project under the Erasmus + program Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices, KA205 - Strategic Partnerships for youth 
Agreement number: 2017-1-PL01-KA205-037837
Project: Entrepreneurship Acceleration Scheme for Youth
Date: 30.09.2017 – 29.03.2019
Beneficiary: Fundacja Edukacja, Zdrowie, Rozwój
Partners: 
- BUSINESS INNOVATION BROKERS S. COOP., Spain
- INSTITUTE OF SOCIAL INNOVATIONS, Czech Republic
- Gaia Ökológiai és Vidékfejlesztési Alapítvány, Hangary
 

The main objective of Entrepreneurship Acceleration Scheme for Youth (EASY) is to motivate young people in the age group 18-30 years towards social self-employment and help them to acquire the requited skills to identify social needs and to accelerate/start-up potential business through the professional assistance methodology quoted above. 
The main aim of the Project is to transfer and personalize the RSBP methodology and the establishment of a new business programme/model of social impact enterprises that have been proved to be successful in Poland (often as social cooperatives) to three countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, and Spain), in four different languages and across different sectors. During the project implementation the RSBP methodology will be tested in different cultures and personalized according to the feedback from its users.

The transnationality of our consortium will give an interesting sample of European societies: A new member state like Poland will export our experience on accelerating social impact entrerprises to old European members like Spain and fellow Eastern European societies like Czech Republic and Hungary. 
Moreover, transnational partnership among different European institutions will help to ensure the consistency of the proposed RSBP methodology and to "personalize" it to diverse context and cultures, allowing thus the enrichment of it and its universalization to be used, potentially and European level.

The original concept for this application came from meetings across partners, sharing similar needs of our target audience and decided to work together to import successful experience of the RSBP methodology in Poland to the rest of the countries.

The Consortium comprises 4 entities of different expertise (local enterprise agencies, social cooperatives, foundtions etc.) but the partnership aims to integrate more entities through intensive communication and feedback from its future users and stakeholders involved (social clusters, social innovation parks, universities, etc.). Each country has representation in several areas of knowledge necessary for the project accomplishment as for example: representatives of the target group & representative from other sector in non-formal education or business development. The wider networks, such as local business partnerships, at a local level exponentially grow the range & scope that each partner is able to draw upon & these partnerships include national & local public sector partners & NGOs, as well as service users.
