During the 11th EU webinar, we will be talking about the topic of Public Private Collaboration. We have mapped initiatives across Europe where joint efforts from the public and private sector are being brought together in order to tackle social issues.
We have identified 14 initiatives across Europe that are approaching public private collaboration in different ways with a varied range of objectives:
- informing public policy;
- improve efficiency of social services;
- build ecosystems for social innovation.
We invite you to join the webinar to find out more about public private partnerships in Europe.
The discussion, lessons learnt and feedback from this webinar will help inform and shape the final report that we will publish in early 2018, focused on the learnings from existing Public Private Collaboration initiatives in Europe.
