Stakeholders mapping completed and workshops in preparation

During one of our recent regular check-in meetings we discussed our activities around stakeholders’ mapping and reach-out activities inviting different institutions from the project target groups to cooperate with us.

We listed experts, partners and entities from our countries interested in joint works on the Business Ideas Marketplace. Some of them already have some ideas to feed our platform of successful business models.

Now our works will focus on the Business Ideas Marketplace – the second Result of the DRAGGING project. This is an online marketplace where different business ideas and models will be catalogued and shared. The business ideas published on the marketplace will be informed and created through our workshops and interviews with local stakeholders.

During the online meeting we discussed the framework for the workshops to be held and the set of questions we would like to work around with our FGI’s participants. The workshops scenarios will be fine-tuned during our next partnership meeting in Bulgaria.



DRAGGING Project is the result of cooperation of 5 partners from 4 European countries committed to address the financial crisis and the COVID crisis in the context of decreasing income of the third sector.

DRAGGING project partnership is glad to launch the new project website:

Through the web platform we will share all the steps and outputs of the 24-month-long pan-European Erasmus+ project, funded by the Spanish National Agency (Servicio Español para la Internacionalización de la Educación (SEPIE)), aiming at reducing the gap between local administrations and local social organisations in order to generate a bank of business opportunities to which these organisations may apply.

The project was launched, and the first partners’ hybrid meetings resulted in detailed concepts and frameworks being developed for a common understanding of the objectives and envisioned deliverables.

Expected impact of the project:

  • To train professionals from social organisations to improve their relationship with the public administration and respond to the needs in terms of new public procurement policies.​
  • To create effective working synergies that allow mutual knowledge and enable new financing tools that are more in line with the needs of social entities and that provide adequate services to the public administration ecosystem.​
  • Job creation generated by entrepreneurial projects and participation of entrepreneurs in the design of social enterprises. ​
  • Impact on Local Public Administration to become an ally in identifying future public procurement market niches.
