The Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) programme is an EU financing instrument that is intended to promote a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty and improving working conditions.
Eurocities and European Commission DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion are partnering under the PROGRESS axis of the Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) financing instrument 2014-2020. As part of our collaboration we will plan a series of activities to raise the profile of cities’ work on social inclusion issues. These activities will include the publication and dissemination of good practice case studies, videos and position papers; information sharing between members; and mutual learning activities, such as study visits. It will also help Eurocities to develop and promote its policy work at EU level on social affairs and related issues.
