DIESIS is one of the widest EU networks specialised in supporting social economy, social enterprise development and social innovation in Europe through the implementation of knowledge-based activities, such as training, project design, consultancy and advisory services, technical assistance and research.
DIESIS operates as part of the social economy, associating general interest, economic performance and democratic governance. As a social economy enterprise our main purpose is to serve our members rather than maximise profits. One of our focus is “Equality and rights” which goal is to promote gender based equality and human rights.
Our projects are mostly transnational, addressing sustainable development goals and maximising social impact as much as possible. We cover more than 10 EU countries through major national federations and national support networks.
