Closing the gap between social enterprises and EU decision-makers
Launched in 2020, the aim of the European Social Enterprise Monitor (ESEM) is to close the current gap on social enterprise data to inform decision-makers in government, civil society and the economy.
Over the past 5-14 years, country monitors in Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom have delivered in-depth data on social enterprise and start-ups leading to important changes in policy-making, investment decision-making and an increased visibility and understanding of the social enterprise model and its crucial role in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Building upon this success, Euclid Network (EN) in collaboration with its members and partners is currently preparing the European Social Enterprise Monitor (ESEM).
The ESEM will be an annual/ biennial meta study, describing the results of an online survey, comprising social enterprise and start-up data at European and country level.
The project will produce elaborate country reports (xSEM) and European comparison, which will allow for profound insights on the social enterprise ecosystem across Europe, and highlight the opportunities for development of the sector and its impact.
