The initiative will take place over two consecutive days of frontal interventions, workshops, comparisons and exchanges, social events and awards.
The event aims to be an opportunity for networking and discussion between the various Italian and international social enterprises, in an equal context, together with representatives of local and Italian social policies (Heads of Departments of local Health Services, local Social Services Managers and Councilors, Representatives of Regional Health Organizations and others) and Italian and International academics and researchers. This interdisciplinary and transnational exchange can be an opportunity to gather ideas and assumptions to create the basis and political perspectives for the actualization and the qualitative and quantitative strengthening of the social economy, with particular attention to the realities of Eastern Europe countries, thanks also to the innovative nature of the project proposals that the conference will be able to produce through the thematic workshops.
