New call for projects in social economy!

22 May 2023

Call for innovative projects for social and democratic enterprises that aim to offer new products or services to meet emerging social needs in the Brussels Capital Region.

Social and democratic enterprises (SDE) spearhead the economic transition because they adopt good practices and innovate constantly, in order to meet local and global needs in a variety of fields (food, mobility, services to individuals, digitalisation, construction, housing, etc.). The Region wants to support these businesses in developing a viable economic activity that meets the needs of Brussels residents and creates non-displaced local employment.

The aim is to support projects that develop new services or products to respond to new or insufficiently met social needs in the Brussels-Capital Region, including the three priorities for this 2023 edition: access to energy and water, to health and well-being and to networks (mobility and digital services).   

To receive what?

  • Financial support from the Region of up to €80,000 (or €120,000 if partnership between several SDOs).
  • Access to COOPCITY's guidance programme (Seeds, Blossom and Innovate programmes).

​​​​Brussels Economy and Employment will organise an info session at Coopcity on 30 May 2023 at 16h30.

(Please register in advance at

The deadline for submitting your application is 2 July 2023 (at midnight).
