PRESS RELEASE – I-SICS International Social Innovation Competition Kit

press_conference1Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Program announced by the European Commission the „I-SICS – International Social Innovation Competition for Students and Adult Learners” project aims to raise the awareness of university students to the most important problems of their regions, and urge them to think in a socially responsible way, so that they can become effective and committed activists of their homelands.


1. The adaptation of good practices in the field of entrepreneurship and student competitions to a new field, that of social innovation.

2. The use of the International Social Innovation Competition as a communication channel, using it as an awareness raising campaign to draw the attention of individuals, companies, media, decision-makers and stakeholders on various other levels to the most important social issues and to urge them to act in a socially responsible way.

3. The creation of a Social Innovation Competition Kit, which will be a ready-to-use package of various materials that can be applied anywhere in Europe.


press_conference2In 2015, best practices, case studies and competition in connection with the field of social innovation have been gathered and examined by a complex research. The results of the research were presented in an information leaflet, namely the „I-ISCS Booklet”, which can be downloaded from the following link:

Based on the research results we announced the I-SICS International Social Innovation Competition, to which university/college students or adult learners above 18 could apply.

The task of the competitors were to develop up-to-date and useful ideas (products, services or models) which satisfy needs of the society and establish new social cooperation.

Each competitor had a mentor who helped during the planning, and in the preparation of the competition. Moreover the competitors also completed a training which is based on the „Social Enterprising Europe (SEE)” program in March of 2016. During the training the competitors also acquired useful entrepreneurial knowledge.

The regional rounds of the I-SICS competition were organised in May of 2016 by all partners, in which students and adult learners presented their project ideas in connection with social innovation. The regionally chosen best placed competitors competed on the international competition in 24-25 of August 2016 in Veszprem, at the University of Pannonia. Beside the competition a workshop were also organized from 21th to 27th of August. The location of the workshop was Balatonalmádi.

I-SICS_KITIn the framework of the project a Social Innovation Competition Kit (I-SICS Kit) were compiled, which provide guidance to the organization of the competition on the field of social innovation, and can be applied all over Europe. The Kit gives a great opportunity to any institution to organize their own social innovation competition. The Kit contains the good practices, and the experiences collected previously the partners, and shared during the organization of their own competition. The composed Kit is based on the previously mentioned good practices, a guideline to anyone who is interested in the organization of social innovation competition.

The I-SICS Kit can be downloaded from the following link:

Within the framework of the KA2-Cooperation and Innovation for Good Practices Erasmus+ Program announced by the European Commission the project will be carried out in cooperation with the following partners: University of Pannonia – Faculty of Business and Economics (Hungary), CVO Antwerpen (Belgium), Europa Consortium (Hungary), BIC Group s.r.o. (Slovakia), Regional Development Agency of Slavonia and Baranja (Croatia), Universitat Rovira I virgili (Spain).

FESSUD Final Conference, Brussels

FESSUD Final ConferenceA two-day event on Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development:
– Tuesday 27 September will be dedicated to a reflection from a research perspective.
– On Wednesday 28 September, we will open the debate from a policy perspective.

More information >>>

The FESSUD project will close 5 years of research about financialisation of our economy. It will present its main findings and policy recommendations for a financial system better serving the economy, society and the environment.

FESSUD brings together expertise from 14 leading universities across Europe and South Africa and PLS as the only civil society organisation to look afresh at how the financial system affects the world around us. This project has studied the growth and impacts of the financial system in Europe and offers recommendations to make the financial system work for society, the economy and the environment and not – as has sometimes been the case – the other way round.

The FESSUD project targets a wide public going from policy makers to representatives of the business sector, through civil society, to academics and citizens from the EU and beyond.

Future of financeUniversity of Leeds press release – 26 May 2016

Europe’s financial sector to expand amid low growth and rising inequality

Europe faces a decade of low growth, rising inequality in income and wealth, and decline or stagnation in workers’ wages.

A wide-ranging survey of 50 business school economists about the future of financial services in Europe also found that the unregulated growth of the so-called ‘shadow banking’ (or non-bank financial) sector could cause another 2008-style financial crisis in the next five to ten years.

The economists were asked to make predictions on subjects including the future role, structure and regulation of the financial sector; the impact of the sector on society; growth and inequality in Europe; and the future remit and responsibilities of the European Central Bank (ECB) and of the central banks of developed countries.

The survey, part of the Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development (FESSUD) research project led by the University of Leeds, found that the benefits of growth and employment of the financial system had been greatly overestimated prior to the 2008 financial crisis.

While Europe’s financial system would remain the same or grow in the next five to ten years, this would not translate into wider economic growth. Growth in the euro area is forecast to remain below 2% and rising unemployment, welfare cuts and austerity will contribute to greater inequality in society.

The economists also predicted that there would be a slight or significant increase in inequality in income and wealth distribution in developed countries in the next five to ten years, while wage income as a share of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) would fall or remain unchanged.

Future of financeProfessor Malcolm Sawyer of Leeds University Business School, project leader of FESSUD, said:
“The survey portrays a financial services sector in Europe continuing to grow, but with the benefits for the citizens of Europe being limited and likely negative. The person in the street will continue to see rising inequality, stagnating wages and sluggish growth, and the financial sector will continue to act as a drag on sustainable growth.

“The findings on the growth of shadow banking in Europe are particularly concerning. As banks are further regulated, shadow banking will continue to grow with, at best, loose regulation. This along with the inherent fragilities of the financial system will increase instability and contribute to the next financial crisis.

“The messages are clear: there has to be fundamental reforms of the financial sector, its scope and influence. It is time for the financial sector to serve society, and not society serving the interests of the financial sector.”

The survey shows that the role of the ECB is expected to change, with economists predicting that it would encompass generating real economic growth in addition to its chief objective of maintaining price stability in the Eurozone. This broadening would be mirrored in the role of national central banks, which will also focus more on financial stability as well as inflation price stability and economic activity. There was consensus that the central banks of developed countries would retain inflation targets of around 2%.

FESSUD is a €10m research programme funded by the European Union and led by Leeds University Business School and involves 14 business schools in Europe and South Africa. The project has examined the dominance of the financial system over other parts of the European economy in the last 30 years and suggests reforms to support economic, social and environmental sustainability.

Key findings of the Future Expansion and Proliferation of Finance Delphi survey include:

Paper author Jesus Ferreiro, University of the Basque Country, and Professor Giuseppe Fontana of the University of Leeds, said: “The finance industry has not learned the lessons from the global financial crisis, and deep reform is needed to make it more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.”
