The Atlantic Social Lab (ASL) has approved an extension to continue developing its work. ASL is a project that seeks to develop and promote approaches and methods of social innovation oriented to meet the social challenges of the Atlantic Area. The project ended in May 2021 and although it has achieved many tangible results, both in the territorial implementation of social innovation practices and at the knowledge generation level, the pandemic has highlighted the gaps and weaknesses regarding social protection and inclusion policies.

The extension of the project, which started in March this year and will last until June 2023, has as the main goal to reflect and respond to these gaps. To this end, a set of pilot actions will be tested, seeking to provide services to citizens in a Covid-19 context, focusing on digitalization – identified as a common challenge throughout the Atlantic Area. This new phase of ASL is also concerned with disseminating and capitalizing the lessons and good practices achieved during the initial phase of the project.
