Launch of a new project 'Innovative Social Services Platform'

The project aims at creating a social platform on innovative social services and at suggesting input for future research activities in Europe through the following actions:
• Implementing a multi-level dialogue on trends of innovative social services by involving a wide range of stakeholders from research, policy making and practice communities. The platform shall work together to investigate, analyse and evaluate innovative practices in the provision of social services across Europe
• Producing highly communicable visual examples representing key aspects of innovative service delivery meeting differentiated needs in the area of health, education and care living
• Identifying future scenarios and new perspectives on innovative social services in Europe with regards to the sectors of health, education and welfare. These findings are expected to represent substantial inputs for further research activities in the EU 2020 strategy
• Designing the process in close cooperation with the European Commission as key user of the project outcomes
