RurInno acknowledges social enterprises as promising but often neglected drivers of social innovations in structurally weak rural regions. Social enterprises strive to tackle social problems and to stabilise and improve the living conditions in these regions. However, reports show that social entrepreneurs still lack specialised trainings and education, a supporting infrastructure and recognition. Against this background, RurInno aims at strengthening the skills and the innovative capacity of social entrepreneurs operating in rural regions, improving the knowledge of how social innovations are implemented in rural regions and raising awareness of social entrepreneurship in rural regions in order to foster enabling environments for their activities.
