EaSI Information and Training Session

The Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) strand of the European and Social Fund Plus builds on the former EaSI programme 2014-2020, maintaining the focus on evidence-based policy-making and social experimentation, support to job mobility and the non-financial instrument activities related to the former Microfinance and Social Entrepreneurship axis.

EaSI is centred on the following main policy priorities:

  • employment and skills;
  • labour markets and labour mobility;
  • social protection and active inclusion; and
  • working conditions.

The concept of social innovation is also an integral part of EaSI.

EaSI is to support analytical activities. Stakeholders can also benefit from networking and capacity-building activities.

To counter labour market shortcomings and develop an integrated EU labour market, it finances cross-border partnerships, and services in cross-border regions as well as EU-wide targeted labour-mobility schemes with a view to filling vacancies where labour markets imbalances have been identified.

Communication and dissemination activities are also a crucial part of this funding strand.

On April 25, 2024, SEM organised an information and training session on EaSI. During this event, SEM officials provided an overview of EaSI and what it entails to apply and implement a project under this funding strand. There was also an opportunity for networking. This session was open for public entities, non-governmental organisations and social partners.
