Become co-organisor of ESIW16!

The fourth edition of the European Social Innovation Week 2016 will take place from 19-23 September in Tilburg (location Spoorzone). The European Social Innovation Week is a week full of inspiring sessions and exciting meetings around Social Innovation. Citizens, entrepreneurs, business people, stakeholders in government, educational institutions and scientists will work together through new collaborations. The aim is to develop new products and services, in consultation with the actual user. The European Social Innovation Week is about sharing knowledge, exchanging experiences and developing new ideas. Last year we have had an amazing and inspiring week. With more than 45 programs, 2.000 visitors, 80 co-organisers and partners, 60 mentions in the media and 10.000 unique website visitors the reach of the ESIW doubled.

Ambitions of 2016

Besides regional and national coverage, we want to focus on the international aspect. For example, we are going to collaborate with the European School of Social Innovation (ESSI). Their general assembly of the ESSI will take place during ESIW16.

The role of the curator will be enhanced by the ESIW-team to give co-organisers better support in the development of their program. We can give support in creating content of your program and how to achieve your program goal. How do reach your audience target? How can we give your program a body and take care of good marketing? Curators will have intense contact with all co-organisers. Unlike last year, the submission deadline is before the big summer break. In this way we can communicate the entirely program before summer.

New in 2016: contribution for co-organisers

To achieve our aspirations and to develop the ESIW, we ask a contribution of the co-organisers. There are several packages available, depending of the size of the program. All packages include at least: location, technical support, communications/marketing and a support of the program team.


Will you be part of the ESIW 2016? Please register and select one of the packages. After registering, you can submit events. The committee will contact you as soon as possible to help to create your program for ESIW16!

The European Social Innovation Week itself is co-produced; companies, organisations and individuals can participate in ESIW15 by organizing their own event during the week. Sharing knowledge experiences and inspiration is key. The final program is put together by the program committee on the basis of the submitted initiatives.
