Online Partners Catch-Up | October 5th, 2021

? Autumn is finally here! On October 3rd, the project consortium of Think Social – Promoting Social Entrepreneurial Mindsets engaged with each other in an online setting to review the project progress. 

? The agenda consisted of two main points:

1️⃣ Dramblys, as the Intellectual Output, gave an update on the Status of IO.1 The Blended Social Entrepreneurial Up-skilling Program, with considerations of how to effectively implement a peer-review process. We considered how to do this in a way that complemented the expertise of our consortium members with the content of modules. Modules will be reviewed with content, relevance, and the ability to implement the activities in mind, considering the target groups these modules were developed for. 

2️⃣ CGE Erfurt e.V. gave an update on the ongoing work of all consortium members on desk research (drawing from our focus group discussions) that is informing our national Social Entrepreneurship Index. As this data is all collected (such as data on the numbers of Third Country Nationals in each state, and percentages of social entrepreneurs overall within the population, and specific to the TCN category, as well as the details of support systems and programs in each state) an infographic will be produced to support the dissemination of this content. 

As well as these key points, we discussed updates on: 

  • The Development of our e-Learning Platform will support our partners to pilot the e-Learning modules currently being produced, and
  • IO2 work plan review, and general project coordination for our international consortium.

?Think Social – Promoting Social Entrepreneurial Mindsets project aims to encourage and enable disadvantaged groups of adults or adults with fewer opportunities, such as migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, low-skilled or low-qualified with a main focus on women to foster the social entrepreneurship idea and spirit in their local and at the ?? EU level through the exchange of good practices and the adoption of innovative digital strategies.
