La Communauté d'Agglomération Pau-Pyrénées includes 14 municipalities with a total of 150.000 inhabitants. Pau has been delivering a wide range of services and programmes in the field of social economy with a very innovative perspective (i.e. le Club d'initiatives solidaires or a Fabrique à projets).
Communauté d'Agglomération Pau-Pyrénées has an extensive experience in the management of transnational projects, among them the Atlantic Area Expression of Interest (EOI) projects INNOVATE and Parkatlantic. The first one was addressing social innovation as an endogenous force to achieve economic development and change.
The partner Pau will be organising the Final Dissemination event foreseen in WP3 and cooperating with the rest of the partners in the project output and activities implementation.
Communauté d'Agglomération Pau-Pyrénées will facilitate the collaboration of stakeholders locally to engage in a common vision of enhancing the social innovation capacity in Pau. They will carry out the Social analysis mapping to identify and implement the pilot actions on social services delivery using the Post staff and resources, to later assess the impact through the Tool kit. They will be leading the Working Group of Social Welfare. In cooperation with the partnership, they will produce the social innovation trend reports and they will finally involve the policy makers, stakeholders and practitioners in the project communication and capitalization. Pau will also organise the Final Communication and Capitalization event to be held in Pau in July 2019.
