  3. Select themes that you are interested in to implement projects.

    16 different thematic keywords were predefined when the database was set up. Each call is classified according to this system either with one, two or more themes to facilitate the search for suitable calls.

  4. You can use free text when searching for interesting calls. All you need to do is to enter a phrase in the text bar that EuroAccess is to look for in its database.

    When looking for a phrase in the free text bar, the system will perform an exact-match search. This means that it will search the database for the exact words, in their exact order. However, you can opt for two different approaches:

    1. You can use “AND”, in this way: One AND Two. EuroAccess will look in the database for the fields which records contain both One and Two, regardless of their order and their position in any sentence.

    2. You can use the “OR”, in this way: One OR Two. In this case, EuroAccess will search the database for fields that contain either the word One or the word Two. It will retrieve all the fields with one of these words or with both.

    However, you should prefer phrases or complex words over simple words in you text searches.

Call content

short description

The expected outcome of this call is to promote informed and better investment decisions, greater market transparency, and performance benchmarking, with the objective to promote investments in social purpose entities (social enterprises, social start-up, impact firms, etc.) through enhanced data capabilities services, and impact management tools and practices. Hence, this call will match the need expressed by many actors in the market, which are showing an increasing data hunger, not enough addressed by current public and private initiatives.

Call objectives

The call’s added value is the contribution it will make to overcome the challenges that so far prevented small-case actors to multiplicate and scale-up, reaching a level of operation that could shift the market towards greater trust, shared/accessible knowledge, and transparency. This is expected to happen through the support provided by this call for proposals, as it will help several players to overcome their limited capacity to give continuity to the much-needed research, development and innovation actions.

Furthermore, following the social innovation logic, which is built on collective intelligence efforts matched with bottom-up and (often) entrepreneurial solutions, this call for proposals will provide the needed support to the development of new solutions (products, services, models, markets, processes etc.) leading to new or improved capabilities and relationships and better use of assets and resources.

At the same time, the overall structure of the call, as also shown by the requirements in terms of the composition of consortia submitting their proposal, revolves around the building blocks of social experimentation projects, where a multi-stakeholder approach is key, especially for needs assessment, mapping and benchmarking of existing solutions.

An additional expected outcome of the call is to overcome the inner tension between innovation or experimentation and business development or growth that are inherent to those actors already delivering services in the field of impact management as well as to those willing to exploit their expertise and know-how approaching the sector. If on the one hand there is a need to develop a business through the launch of a product or service that is easily scalable, on the other hand experimentation processes are highly risky from a business perspective, especially when they are designed in a way that embeds since its inception phase the issue of scalability and growth.

For this reason, the call aims at providing funding to ease a proper and effective balance between experimentation and business development, ensuring not only the beneficiaries will reach a development stage that allows for scaling their activities, but also their ability to extrapolate important and re-usable learnings from such process.

In fact, the final objective of the call is not only to have a new service or product for impact data verification, impact performance intelligence, or for any other knowledge-driven innovation models for better decision-making in the social impact investment market, but also that the new product or service that has been designed, developed, piloted and tested, and initially validated by the market, is also ready to be scaled up.

For this reason, ultimate goal of this call for proposals is to ensure the continuity of the actions after the period of Union financing provided for in the Grant Agreement, and hence the call’s results will mainly depend on the achievement of a set of well- defined milestones rather than the positive evaluation of the agreed deliverables.

Themes and priorities:

In the context of this call, because of the innovation and experimentation component above-mentioned, the testing dimension and evaluation and scaling, along with the iterative process, are fundamental aspects of the expected proposals, which priority is to set up or bring at scale marketable innovative solutions for impact data verification, impact performance intelligence, or for any other knowledge-driven innovation models for better decisionmaking in the social impact investment market.

For this reason, on top of specific requirements in terms of consortium composition, market validation is considered a fundamental proxy for assessing the successful alignment of the project’s results with the overall themes and priorities of the call.

From this point of view, the scope of the call is set by the fact that social impact has become a key market trend. Some companies are strengthening their social responsibility component, others are even adapting their business models to maximise social impact along with profits, or are adopting socially-oriented policies on their value chains. On the other hand, social enterprises and impact-firms are all about the primacy of the social impact (instead of the profit-seeking approach). An increasing amount of investors is interested in taking into account these practices when called to take an investment decision. However, on both the demand and the supply side, it is not always easy to understand to what extent claims on impact actually reflect the reality. Also, even when impact claims are well supported by independent studies, access to data is often limited. Furthermore, comparability among different companies on their ability to generate intentional social impact is limited too.

The call for proposals will provide support to those actors currently delivering services or products, or those actors able and willing to design and develop new services or products that could help overcome the above-mentioned challenges, which in turn will be instrumental in addressing the impact washing phenomenon, being it intentional or not, and to face the low availability or limited accessibility of quality market signals on actual social impact performance.

In fact, in the market there are already a few actors able to provide social impact management services, including measurement, independent verification, assurance, certification, etc. Some of these companies are also able to benchmark companies against the social impact they generate. Others can provide a social impact outlook to market players, or ranking them based on different variables, including the social impact.

On the other hand, the social impact investing market needs not only currently operating actors to scale and grow, but it requires an increase of the available services and products. Hence this call for proposals also encourages newcomers, which might be newly established companies or businesses working in other sectors but with relevant expertise and skills to develop and deliver successful services and products in this field.

In order to have more and better-informed investment decisions, greater market transparency, and performance benchmarking, the European Commission intends to support these actors, especially because they might face high entry costs and difficulties in accessing the market, and need important investments to scale, as this often requires the adoption of more sophisticated technologies (automated data gathering through web-scraping techniques, big data analytics through machine learning algorithms, etc.).

Therefore, the themes covered by this call are the provision of enhanced data capabilities services, as well as impact management tools and practices to social purpose entities, with the objective to make them easily available in in the market.

Expected effects and impacts

The expected result of the call is to help fostering innovation and experimentation for populating the social impact investing ecosystem, so to ensure continuity after the end of the grant with more and stronger actors able to bring to the market impact data verification and impact performance intelligence services, and other knowledge-driven innovation models for social impact investing decision-making. Ultimately this should enable more and better-informed investment decisions, greater market transparency, and performance benchmarking. Moreover, this in turn would reduce the space for opportunistic behaviours and information asymmetries, increasing trust among market players and setting the right conditions for the market growth. A stronger, more transparent, and better functioning market for social impact investment is instrumental to deliver on the European Pillar of Social Rights by promoting investments in many of the areas covered by its principles.

Expected results

The activities to be funded will be instrumental for designing, experimenting, piloting, validating, developing and/or expanding the above mentioned services, which include– but are not limited to – impact data verification (i.e. the assessment of an investor’s impact management practices or impact performance against specific industry standards) and, more broadly, impact performance intelligence services, which in turn comprise the strategies and technologies used by enterprises for the data analysis and management of relevant impact performance information.

Common tools of impact performance intelligence services might include – but are not limited to – reporting, online analytical processing, predictive or prescriptive analytics, dashboard development, data or text mining, process mining, complex event processing, business performance management, benchmarking, rating, and signalling.

Therefore, the activities that can be carried out under this call for proposals are, on the one hand, all those usual activities an entrepreneur would carry out to move from the ideational phase of a service or product to its commercialization (product/service ideation, product/service development, product/service go-to-market, product/service business set up, and product/service business fundraising and growth); on the other hand, given the objective of the call and through a strong experimentation component, activities that can be carried out under this call for proposals relates also to the research, development and innovation activities usually performed to have a product or service that allows the business to scale and grow.

Although more details on the expected activities are explained under the potential deliverables mentioned in the next paragraph, along with the key milestones, the following ones can be indicatively considered as specific activities that can be funded under this call for proposals:

  • Brainstorming sessions for idea generation, market research to validate the feasibility of the idea, identification of potential business options, and definition of target customers and their needs
