Capacity development of public and private organisations for Social Impact Bonds

Programme: INTERREG Alpine Space

The current economic and social crisis has been challenging traditionally established patterns in the social sector. Limited/shrinking financial resources cannot ­satisfy the growing needs of the social sector, among which ageing population, increasing number of NEETs (young people not in education, employment or training), greater need for health services ect.
Growing societal challenges are calling for social innovation and a stipulation of a new social economy, which would connect the public-private-third sectors. The economic concepts of capital and investment would become social policy instruments and would give a greater value for money in public services.

The AlpSib project is addressing NEET and seniors’ needs by introducing innovative solutions. The project is set to accelerate social impact investments (SII) and focuses especially on social impact bonds (SIB). It plans to accelerate SII by developing a Social Impact Investing Hub for knowledge sharing, policies coordination and development and for assisting the supply chains in setting up new SII initiatives.

The AlpSIB Platform

The AlpSIB project ended in July 2019. It worked on the capacity development of public and private organizations for social impact contracting and delivered a webplatform with e-learning modules and a wide repository of relevant studies and documents.

The platform is available at

It is possible to register as investor, intermediary, or social provider.
