Enisie is a project of the Programme Interreg VA Italy-Malta to promote the competitiveness of the cross-border area. The partnership is formed by Tree srl (lead partner), Impact Hub Siracusa, Malta Enterprise and The Malta Council for Voluntary Organisations. The objective of the project is to promote the creation and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of enterprises (micro, small and medium) and employment in the cross-border area in sectors that have a positive impact in the social and environmental field. The success of the project is based on the ability to exploit the asymmetries and complementarities still under-exploited by the cross-border territories, to accelerate innovation in key areas such as food, digital health and sustainable tourism and to encourage the circular mobility of qualified young people and the processes of internationalization and consolidation of innovative SMEs of the two sides of the cross-border territories.
The innovation of the project lies not only in its main subject of intervention, social innovation, but also in the novelty of its approach that is four times innovative:
derived from the direct experience of practitioners
to business incubators and social innovation
in its focus on policies, practices and enablers
Capable of maintaining an overall view and balanced between “enterprise” and “social”.
