On March 2, Diesis Network organised the workshop “Skills for the twin transition: what does the new social entrepreneur need?” in the frame of the Social Innovation Campus.
The workshop focused on the main skills that are required for social entrepreneurs to maximize their contribution to the twin transitions and on how the social economy business model can play a key role in the green and digital transition, which requires a profound change in business models and economic practices.
baSE project and its actions had a central role in the workshop. After a brief presentation of the Transition Pathway for proximity and social economy ecosystem, the baSE Blueprint project was presented enlightening its contribution to:
- fulfilling the skill gap linked to the green and digital transitions,
- the definition of new professional profiles and of training paths for up-skilling and re-skilling,
- the creation of a “SocioComp” competence framework based on the JRC frameworks EntreComp, GreenComp and DigComp2.2.
The presentation of baSE was coherently followed by a presentation by the JRC (EU Joint Research Center) on the above-mentioned competencies framework, which was followed by a presentation of TIRESIA, the Research Centre for Impact, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Finance of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano, focused on the “Tech for Good” approach to combining societal impact and economic growth using technology for the common good.
