In European Social Enterprise Monitor, EU Policy


Intermediary Org: European Commission


The European Commission is proud to have supported the first inaugural European Social Enterprise Monitor (ESEM). It serves as a testament to the extent social enterprises already contribute to the European community and how much potential they still have to offer.


“In 2019 EN initiated, together with a consortium of 20 of our members and partners and an esteemed academic research board, a key project to address the lack of comparable social enterprise data across Europe. This became the first European Social Enterprise Monitor. The resulting European and national Monitor reports from this project shed light on social enterprises and their ecosystems across 8 countries in Europe: Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom…”
