In collaboration with Católica-Lisbon, the EIB Institute has developed a series of webinars aimed at social entrepreneurs called “Social Innovation, Scaling, and Impact” (follow the link to see all the webinars). Throughout 2018 and 2019, numerous webinars were organised on topics of interest for social entrepreneurs to help them scale their impact further. The webinars are delivered by international-oriented speakers with deep expertise, in both academia and practice, in social entrepreneurship, fundraising and impact investing.

The closing webinar of the 2019 series featured a dialogue between the webinar series director – Professor Filipe Santos – and Professor Filipe Almeida, President of Portugal Social Innovation, on the future of social innovation and impact investing, in particular the case of “Portugal Inovação Social”.
