Small or medium-sized companies (called WISEs - Work Integration Social Enteprises) that work on the integration of disadvantaged groups face significant shortages of skilled labour force. Such shortages mainly refer to technological progress and economic innovation. The INNO-WISEs project will tackle these weaknesses by improving the capacity of such companies enabling them to offer qualified jobs to disadvantaged groups. The project connects actors from work integration social enterprises, research, technological experts and relevant public authorities.

Together they will develop and deliver solutions for applying key technologies and managerial models to the social enterprise sector. The project will create a knowledge management framework, a flexible digital communication platform and training programmes. Through its activities, it will change the entrepreneurial mind-set, skills and attitude of the sector thus building and promoting a stronger culture of entrepreneurship and greater social cohesion.
