The objectives of this project are set in the framework of the Social Innovation Europe Initiative and follow on from the establishment of the European Platform against Poverty, the Social Innovation Pilot within the European Social Fund, the PROGRESS programme and the focus on young people and employment through Youth on the Move and New Skills for New Jobs . They come together around the key question:
In the rapidly redrawn landscape of deprivation and inequalities across Europe, how might policy-makers (at local, national and EU levels) be assisted in their objectives to tackle inequalities through learning from innovative strategies developed for and by young people and particularly those from marginalised groups in major European cities, including an elaboration of the resources and technologies at the heart of these social innovations?
