Also note that the Ceremony will conclude 2 days dedicated to social innovation in Brussels. On 19 May and 20 May (morning) the Commission is organising a Social Policy Innovation Conference to present the new Employment and Social Innovation programme and to explore ways to translate social innovation into systemic change.
This is the spirit of the Declaration on social entrepreneurship adopted in Strasbourg and this was the goal of Diogo Vasconcelos, to whom this Competition pays tribute.
