Launch event: Studies on civil society in Portugal
The launching event of two studies produced under the Portuguese 'NGO programme' focusing on the important role NGOs play in Portuguese society will take place on 25 February 2015.
The first study, 'Survey Study on the NGO Sector in Portugal' is produced by the Catholic University of Portugal and aims to strengthen the knowledge on the reality of NGOs in Portugal, both in terms of socio-economic weight, their areas of activity, forms of organisation and management and financial skills, as well as their main strengths and weaknesses.
The second study, "Social Innovation in Cidadania Ativa Programme Projects", was produced by the Social Entrepreneurship Institute. The study analyses the projects supported by the Programme in terms of their sustainability and value in terms of social innovation, highlighting some good practices in these areas.
