THE HAGUE (Euclid Network) – We are proud to announce the official launch of the inauguralEuropean Social Enterprise Monitor (ESEM) report at the European Commission’s European Social Economy Summit #EUSES, held virtually in Mannheim on 26th May 2021. The Monitor aims to close the current gaps in data, knowledge, awareness and understanding of social enterprise on  both national and European levels. 


ESEM is a panel research project launched in 2020, aiming to provide in-depth data and insights on social enterprises and social start-ups across Europe. The first of its kind, ESEM fills the current gap in data on social enterprises in Europe and offers an unparalleled opportunity to develop policies that have a strong, broad and comprehensive evidence base. The report ensures that data provided by impact practitioners is readily available for decision-makers in politics, civil society and the wider economy. The outcomes highlighted by the ESEM report aim to ensure that funding opportunities and policies on national as well as European level are more responsive to the needs of social entrepreneurs.
