Project objectives FIT4SE – Financial Tools for Social Enterprise, co-financed by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) 2014-2020, is a project promoted by Legacoop Romagna, in consortium with AICCON and Demetra Formazione. The project is aimed at identifying the financial needs of social enterprises in an attempt to meet them at the local level (Romagna: provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Ravenna and Rimini). This is to be achieved by involving social cooperatives present in the territories in a training course that will develop starting from the results of the project research Work Package (WP1) carried out by AICCON.

The WP1 consists of: a desk research, aimed at making the theme meaningful, both on the European and national level; an empirical research, aimed at identifying the financial management methods currently in place in the sample cooperatives built by Legacoop Romagna and their gap in terms of financial needs.

This report is the executive summary of the activities described above.
