ESSENTIALS – Experiences of Social and Solidarity Economy: Networks of Incubators as TerritoriAL development Strategies

The project aims at providing insights into the study and interpretation of processes that contribute to the promotion of networks of Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) as well as identifying models that can lead to social inclusion and local development. Moreover, the project ESSENTIALS will focus on a specific experience, Social Incubators (SI), in an attempt to encourage socio-economic development of a specific area or of a whole country, regarding processes of social innovation and transfer of knowledge. The research carried out in Latin America (Argentina and Brazil) will be compared (quantitatively and qualitatively) with European incubation activities.
