EaSI | Italian national Contact Point

Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini, through Open Incet, the Open Innovation center of Turin, which it has managed since 2015, is the National Contact Point for the EASI Program.

The EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) is a European financial instrument that aims to promote a high level of sustainable and quality employment, ensure adequate and decent social protection, combat marginalization and poverty, and improve working conditions.

Between 2021-2027, the EASI program will become a component within the European Social Fund plus (ESF+).

The European Social Fund+ (ESF+)

The European Social Fund+ (ESF+) is the European Union’s (EU) main instrument for investing in people. With a budget of nearly € 99.3 billion for the years 2021 to 2027, the ESF+ will continue to make a noteworthy contribution to EU employment, social, education and skills policies by promoting the implementation of structural reforms in these areas.

As part of the cohesion policy, ESF+ will also continue its mission to support economic, territorial and social cohesion in the EU by reducing disparities between member states and regions.
