Social Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation

During the crisis, social enterprises have shown to be remarkably resilient, both in terms of economic outcomes and in maintaining and creating employment. Relatedly, social innovation seeks to improve and modernise the matching of skills and needs of employees and the needs of the workplace so as to simultaneously increase productivity and job satisfaction. The draft report of Verónica Lope Fontagné (EPP, ES) examines how social enterprises and social innovation can contribute to creating the jobs the European Union urgently needs.

The aim of the discussion during the Committee meeting on 7 May is also to feed into the draft report, which will be presented at a later stage. Rapporteur: Sven Schulze (EPP, DE).

EMPL committee will vote on the legislative report on a European Platform to enhance cooperation in the prevention and deterrence of undeclared work.
