INTERNATIONAL
PARTNERSHIP
One of the framework areas of the SOL Center's work is international partnership and cooperation. We are consistently developing this area of activity and will continue to move in this direction.

Over the years, the SOL Innovation Center has become a partner of many interesting international programs and events.

In particular, we cooperate with leading foundations and social enterprises that help solve socially significant problems in Europe. We also organize visiting sessions for social entrepreneurs in Russia — to exchange experience and search for new partnerships.

Thus, we solve the problem of the underrepresentation of Russia's social leaders in the global community. We received this information during the work on the Map of Changemakers in Russia — SoChain, which presents data on 1489 socially-oriented projects and organizations.

An in-depth study of SoChain showed that changemakers lack knowledge of international practices and involvement in international activities, and since 2017 the SOL Center has been consistently solving the identified problem.
