Filippo Addarii, Euclid Network’s Executive Director, has been selected as a member of the expert group for Commissioner Barnier's Social Business Initiative.
The new Commission Group of Experts (Groupe d'Experts de la Commission sur l'entrepreneuriat social – ‘GECES') was set up by the Directorate General Internal Market and Services following the Communication on the Social Business Initiative. Read more about the European Commission’s Social Business Initiative, which works to contribute to the creation of a favourable environment for the development of social business in Europe, on the EC’s Internal Market website.
GECES will run for six years (2012 – 2017) and aims to examine the progress of the measures envisaged in the Social Business Initiative. Filippo Addarii and other Euclid Network members will sit in this influential group, giving Euclid Network a strong voice in offering views on the policies and practical means related to social enterprise and social investments.
The first meeting will be held in Brussels on 5th June; click here to view the agenda. Euclid Network will consult members soon after the meeting has taken place. You are warmly welcomed to submit feedback and comments at that stage for the expert group’s consideration.
