This free event marks the close of the Innovative Social Investment: Strengthening Communities in Europe (INNOSI) project that has been led by PERU. The Horizon2020 funded project looks at innovative approaches to social investment across 10 European countries drawing on 20 in-depth case studies, econometric analysis and user voice. It also included a foresight project to look at future directions in European social policy.

The event will draw on all of the different strands of work undertaken during the 30 month project and focus on the challenge of making new social rights real. The keynote speech will be by Prof. Anton Hemerijck, Professor of Political Science and Sociology at European University Institute and author of “The uses of social investment” (OUP, 2017).
