OPENING UP LOCAL HORIZONS TO BROADER EUROPEAN OPPORTUNITIES
TOWARDS EUROPE 2020
The beginning of the programming period 2014-2020 coincided with the birth of the European Projects Office within the cooperative ITACA under the Research & Development Area. The Research & Development Area defines vision, mission and business strategies for the development of new projects and international partnerships. The cooperative’s strategic planning is to work with European resources for promoting innovation, experimentation and social change.
The European Projects Office supports local services in being fully embedded within the broader frame of EU policies, fostering the creation of international networks for community development.
In our development plans, we bring together resources and knowledge from different countries within the European Union to address common problems.
We build public-private partnerships, relying on established collaborations with Universities, research institutions, local authorities, associations and the private-social sector.
AREAS OF INTERVENTION
People-oriented services (services for people with disabilities, the elderly, infants, children, youngsters, and people with mental health problems), social inclusion and social innovation, community development and social entrepreneurship.
