SEED

Capacity Gap Report SEED

SEED is the concrete and REAL answer to specific capacity needs of social enterprises on how to enhance their competitiveness and support their growth potential, also and especially in the context of post-crisis Europe and the needs of the dual mission of the social economy.

SEED stems from the demand for specific training tailored to the needs of microenterprises identified by EU institutions:

  • “A Map of Social Enterprises and Their Ecosystems in EU”, Commission, DG EMPL, 2014
  • “SBI Social Business Initiative, Creating Favourable Climate for Social Enterprises”COM2011-682
  • Parliament Opinion “Social Business Initiative”2012/04


While accurate, the gaps and needs identified by these policy documents need to be corroborated with evidence from the ground to ensure accuracy and relevance of the training to be developed by SEED. Hence partners will further identify specific skill and capacity needs by involving target group representatives in a thorough capacity gap assessment involving at least 50 social enterprises in the countries involved. This will allow to go from the “macro-level” of EU policy papers to the “micro” level of REAL environment in which social enterprises really operate: what are the REAL skills that REAL social enterprises need to face the REAL challenges in every day operations.

This will allow to address specific capacity needs of target groups and develop most appropriate training solutions.
