Development and dissemination of methods that enhance development of social economy structures that are operating under the framework of Regional Operational Programmes in social companies, which will assure their economic independence and self-existence

Development and utilisation of the relevant financial tools

Development of educational tools and training processes with three beneficiaries: the employees of the Active Observatory, the project's pilot companies, authorities of the broader public sector, the local self governments and people, who will express their interest in developing activities of social economy.

Networking with other efforts of social economy in national and European level.
