BWISE Meeting WP2 Draft Report 1

During the past week, the NASOR team participated in a workshop on work package 2, the main purpose of which was to familiarize all partners involved in case studies 1 and 2 with the summary results based on the interim reports provided by each participating country under the B-WISE project. The lead partner on the specific work package had successfully aggregated the data and analyzed the varying degree of application of digital skills and the challenges facing each social enterprise. Based on all the information, the summary report 1 was compiled.

Work package 2 was presented in detail in all its phases – the contribution of each of the partners involved in the B-WISE project was explained in detail, together with the specifics of the WISE -researched categories in the respective region. Thanks to the information provided, a comparative analysis was prepared, through which the characteristics of the different types of social enterprises in the leading European countries were successfully mapped. By looking at each of the regions independently, subjecting the results to a SWOT analysis, and then comparing the results of the different WISEs, we were able to get an overall picture of the scale, the elements of each WISE, and the positioning of each country on the axis of research (as per the presentation slide)

Three main implications were formulated:

* In countries with a stronger level of support, the modeling proposed as scenarios tends to be partially blurred. Social enterprises tend to be fully productive (those that have a productive turnover of millions of euros, pay high wages to hundreds of workers, etc.), but at the same time have resources to structure training and social activities.

* In such countries, labor integration becomes “paid”, and it is possible to find low-profit or even for-profit WISEs (which is not the case in low-support countries where social enterprises are non-profit).

* Everywhere, but especially in countries with low support, training ,WISE as well as social WISE are emerging within “social economy groups” as an expression of non-WISE social economy organizations that activate and support (usually small ) manufacturing sector.
