About this event

At the latest with the framework of the future cohesion policy 2021-2027, crowdfunding has started to become increasingly interesting for public authorities as a further option to be included in the existing mix of financial instruments.

In order to understand the relevance of this innovative financial mechanism for public authorities and citizens, the 6th CrowdCamp will present core insights from the forthcoming Scaling Up Partnerships report, presenting best practices of financial mechanisms set up between crowdfunding and public funds, and potential opportunities for replication at both the European and regional levels.

Over the past months of health and economic crisis due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, crowdfunding has proven to be a resilient and efficient funding mechanism not only to support not-for-profit initiatives, but also to improve access to liquidity for small businesses. In this perspective, there have been several cases in which partnerships between public authorities and crowdfunding platforms have proven to be an effective combination to achieve ambitious objectives in a strained social and economic context.

Learning from recent examples, EUROCROWD’s 6th CrowdCamp aims at promoting ways on how to maintain and scale up positive partnerships between public authorities and crowdfunding platforms.

The 6th CrowdCamp will be hosted online on 17 June 2021, in cooperation with ART-ER Research to Business conference.
