The two central questions driving the ImPRovE project are:
- 1. How can social cohesion be achieved in Europe?
- 2. How can social innovation complement, reinforce and modify macro-level policies and vice versa?
The output of ImPRovE will include over 55 research papers, about 16 policy briefs and at least 3 scientific books. The ImPRovE Consortium will organise two international conferences (March 2014 and February 2016). In addition, ImPRovE will develop a new database of local projects of social innovation in Europe, cross-national comparable reference budgets for 6 countries (Belgium, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Spain and the United Kingdom) and will strongly expand the available policy scenarios in the European microsimulation model EUROMOD.
