DanubeChance2.0 - Transnational Policy Learning Instrument


Transnational Policy Learning Instrument

Supporting policymakers across the Danube region in reaching the common understanding of framework conditions needed for supporting entrepreneurs in crisis and helping failed entrepreneurs to restart

The report developed by the Centre for Social Innovation in Austria offers various interesting and insightful resources for policymakers interested in bringing their region forward in terms of economic productivity and inclusive growth.

First of all, the tool includes a report describing 6 dimensions relevant to second-chance entrepreneurship such as:

  • specific second-chance entrepreneurship policy,
  • framework of restructuring,
  • bankruptcy and insolvency policies, networks and cooperation of second-chance entrepreneurs.

Furthermore, the report includes a comparative analysis of the situation in the Danube Region and a presentation of good practices that can be used as inspiring sources for policy makers in the region.

Last but not least, the report allows policymakers to dive into the issue of stigmatization of failure in society and ways how to tackle it.

Besides that, the Policy Learning Instruments include a transferability study, highlighting specific insights on selected good policymaking practices coming from inside and outside of the Danube Region, like the Early Warning Europe program. This rich resource gives policymakers the necessary tools to work on the target areas which are of key importance in bringing the issue of second-chance entrepreneurship forward.
