The ‘European Social Economy Summit’ (#EUSES) is a jointly organized digital conference by the European Commission and the City of Mannheim. The #EUSES is a conference which aims at strengthening the social economy in Europe and harness its contribution to economic development, social inclusion as well as green and digital transitions. The discussions will focus on three dimensions: digitalisation of the Social Economy, (social) innovation, cross-country and cross-sectoral collaboration.

The #EUSES is an opportunity to bring all stakeholders active in the social economy together.


The #EUSES will offer a forum for numerous exchanges on the role of social economy in Europe as a vector for economic development and social inclusion. The summit will be an opportunity to discuss how social economy can help reshape the economy post-COVID by promoting inclusive sustainable economic models for the green and digital transition within Europe.

Social economy and social enterprises create jobs, provide accessible services, foster upskilling, address environmental challenges and strengthen communities. They carry potential for social innovation and social cohesion. They contribute positively to the economy and society at large. Social economy and social enterprises are an excellent example of “An economy that works for people.”
