 New Call

Call for Proposals VP/2014/008

Call for proposals for social policy innovations supporting reforms in social services

Details:

The purpose of this call is to foster social innovations and reforms in the field of social services policy design and/or delivery. Innovation in social services means new practices, policies or processes to meet known and newly emerging challenges. This may involve improving the delivery, availability, coverage, accessibility, quality, affordability, effectiveness and efficiency of an existing service or creating a new service which better meets citizens' needs.

Effective and efficient policy innovations require a sound and thorough evidence base that enables to plan the most appropriate course of action and to identify and avert potential negative issues. This approach is consistent with the emphasis on good governance of the European Union and to the increased need to ensure quality of public spending while responding to citizens' needs and expectations.

Call for Proposals VP/2013/012

 

Call for proposals for social policy experimentations supporting social investments

Details:

Priorities of the call for Community financing

The present call focuses on the methodological aspects of the different phases of social policy innovations, policy reforms or policy adaptations. Consequently, particular attention should be given to the evaluation and dissemination. This approach is consistent with the emphasis on good governance of the European Union, the increased need to ensure quality of public spending while responding to citizens' needs and expectations. This is reflected by the principle - from both a social and budgetary perspective - that the impact, adequacy and effectiveness of social reforms should be tested before their generalisation.
