Following the initiative of CGET (the French government’s office for land planning, and territorial and urban policy), La Fonda (a well-established think tank working with associations) and around 50 more partners, France has launched the ‘Carrefour des innovations sociales’ (Social Innovation Hub).

This platform aims at unleashing the potential of social innovation, providing spaces for co-construction. To date, not less than 1208 factsheets on social innovation initiatives can be found on the platform.

One of the founding members of the Carrefour, AEIDL brings a European dimension to this French project by rallying other Member States to the approach.

AEIDL is part of the working groups on “Data” (data analysis, collection, taxonomies, and databases) and on “European Dimension”.
