Hey there! I’ve got an exciting story to share with you. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend an insightful and outstanding organised info session seminar in a truly spectacular setting. But it wasn’t just the fancy location and appetizing food that made it special. It was the knowledge and insights I gained during the Applicant Seminars for the EUI – Innovative Actions. Let’s dive into the details of this remarkable event together!

8.30 am Rue Revenstein, Brussels, a hectic rush hour outside but, imagine stepping into a futuristic building that exudes innovation and a freshly brewed coffee smell. A delightful welcome breakfast set a warm and inviting tone for the entire event. The atmosphere was charged with anticipation as like-minded individuals gathered, eager to explore the world of the EUI – Innovative Actions.

After breakfast, we were all ready to kick-start the day and fuel our excitement for the upcoming sessions. To make a long story short, we delved into the core of the EUI – Innovative Actions, gaining a comprehensive understanding of its goals and governing rules. We explored the program’s thematic coverage and main features, uncovering a world of exciting opportunities within the 3 main topics: 1) Greening Cities 2) Sustainable Tourism 3) Harnessing talent in shrinking cities. The sessions left us feeling empowered and ready to make a meaningful impact with our innovative ideas.

But wait, there’s more! The break-out sessions provided us with invaluable technical insights. We received a thorough understanding of the application process, diving into details such as intervention logic, finance, eligibility rules, and project budgeting. We also learned about transfer partner mechanisms, communication strategies, and the importance of effectively conveying our ideas. Armed with this knowledge, we felt confident and well-equipped to take our innovative projects to new heights.

In conclusion, attending the Applicant Seminars for the EUI – Innovative Actions was a worthy idea and experience beyond compare, my friends! The breathtaking venue, delightful food, and precious insights shared during break-out sessions left us inspired and ready to make a change. We left the event feeling empowered, armed with the knowledge and motivation to pursue a real difference through the EUI – Innovative Actions. So, get ready to unleash your innovation and passion. The world awaits our brilliant ideas!

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
