What is the CoRá Project
CoRá is part of a wider EU project, Facilitating United Approaches to Social Innovation in Europe (FUSE), which is a consortium made up of Ireland, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Portugal. FUSE is set up to promote social innovation and cross-collaboration in each of the partner countries – Link to FUSE website. The CoRá project is the Irish dimension of the FUSE project and is led by Rethink Ireland and Genio Trust. CoRá aims to develop a joint blueprint for a Social Innovation Strategy and Action Plan. This will be developed with a collaborative and inclusive approach with the active participation of representatives from the public and private sectors, civil society, and academia – Link to CoRá website. Funding for the CoRá project comes from both the European Union (from the European Social Fund and the Employment and Social Innovation Programme) and the Department of Rural and Community Development (DRCD)and will take place over two years, from 2021 – 2023.
