Boosting cooperation between the 3rd Sector and Public Administration as a goal of our new EU project: DRAGGING


Boosting Entrepreneurship with the Public Administration among NGOs and Social Economy Entities is the goal of the international partnership of 5 organizations from Spain, Poland, Ireland, and Bulgaria. A Business Ideas Marketplace created jointly with business and public administration, mentoring and online workshops for NGOs, will become the means to "drag out" potential for cooperation between the 3rd sector and the public administration institutions.


DRAGGING Project has an objective to help with the following 3 challenges:
  • diversify the sources of income for NGOs by improving their capacity to respond to the needs of the administration and to achieve stable sources of income and by identifying new opportunities for collaboration between the social and business worlds when providing services to public administrations
  • take advantage of new legislations/public hiring opportunities
  • generate job opportunities for people at risk of exclusion

One of the main project results - the marketplace of ideas - will allow companies to identify and develop business opportunities that respond to the shortcomings of their respective sector.
The second output that we would like to announce is the online training course that will additionally provide competencies and skills related to entrepreneurship and business management to give support to the most vulnerable entrepreneurs in managing their own micro companies.

The Dragging Project involves a group of 5 partners, coming from 4 different countries: Spain, Poland, Ireland, and Bulgaria.
