EU PROGRAMME FOR EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL INNOVATION (EaSI)


Summary

EaSI is managed directly by the European Commission. It brings together three EU programmes managed separately between 2007 and 2013: PROGRESS, EURES and Progress Microfinance. As of January 2014, these programmes will form the three axes of EaSI. They will support:

  • the modernisation of employment and social policies with the PROGRESS axis (61% of the total budget); job mobility with the EURES axis (18% of the total budget);
  • access to micro-finance and social entrepreneurship with the Microfinance and Social Entrepreneurship axis (21% of the total budget).

Programme Description

The main objectives of EaSI are the following:

  • Strengthen ownership of EU objectives and coordination of action at EU and national level in the areas of employment, social affairs and inclusion.
  • Support the development of adequate social protection systems and labour market policies.
  • Modernise EU legislation and ensure its effective application.
  • Promote geographical mobility and boost employment opportunities by developing an open labour market.
  • Increase the availability and accessibility of microfinance for vulnerable groups and micro-enterprises, and increase access to finance for social enterprises.

In pursuing these objectives, EaSI will:

  • pay particular attention to vulnerable groups, such as young people,
  • promote equality between women and men,
  • combat discriminations,
  • promote a high level of quality and sustainable employment,
  • guarantee adequate and decent social protection,
  • combat long-term unemployment,
  • fight against poverty and social exclusion.
