Our SOGAcademy programme

This Community project was born out of the results of our 2019 study which aimed to analyse the needs of social utility actors in cooperation with digital actors.

Our results shows that a large majority of social utility structures that have cooperated with a structure of the tech innovation consider that this cooperation has had positive effects on the reinforcement of its Tech skills (80%) and the reinforcement of its social impact (78%). However, a large majority considers that Social Economy and civil society structures are not sufficiently aware of the potential of technology (76%).

We have therefore conceived the SOGAcademy as a peer-to-peer, open source, democratic and practical #ESS digital acculturation programme designed to “empower” SSE actors in their digital transition and their participation in the construction of digital public policies in Europe.


The “Social Innovation Village” is a collective non-profit initiative, launched by the Social Good Accelerator, supported by European Commission Directorate General for Research and Innovation and private partners such as Fondation La France s’engage, Accenture, Fondation Groupe EDF and Société Générale Directorate of Innovation. The Village is the place where social meets tech, and tech meets social. We aim to diffuse knowledge about and accelerate social innovation in the EU, the Social Innovation Village hosts 24 social innovators and representative stakeholders.
