Euclid Network both leads and partners in a number of specific projects, funded by a range of donors and with a variety of partners.
All projects contribute to our mission and vision. All projects also link to each of our four programme areas, and use an open, collaborative and network-based methodology providing opportunities for our members to learn, engage and connect.

This peer exchanges project will create links between UK and Macedonian CSOs, with a focus on those working in human rights, policy making & advocacy, transparency & accountability and economic opportunities. Civil Society Peer Exchanges will deliver immediate and lasting benefits for British and Macedonian civil society by sharing knowledge and best practices through UK-Macedonia peer exchanges. The project will consist of a competition to find solutions to three key challenges in civil society, UK-Macedonia peer exchanges, master-classes, the development of an online platform for stakeholders and the establishment of a best-practice toolkit.
CONSIDER will establish a model of CSO participation in research, contrasting theoretical views on benefits and limitations with empirical findings on the practice of CSO participation. Based on a grid of analysis, the project will survey all FP7 research projects to identify those involving CSOs, and analyse all of these to identify and understand the characteristics, influencing factors and best practice of CSO participation. 30 relevant projects will be selected and investigated in detail using established case study methods, providing practical examples and references for researchers and CSO wishing to create research partnerships.
Responsible Industry aims to design an exemplar implementation plan of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) across different industries to demonstrate how the industrial sector can work productively together with a variety of actors from society. The project will focus on the role that research and innovation in ICT can play in addressing the big challenge of health, demographic change, ageing and wellbeing. It will guide interactive discussions between leading industry partners, established RRI experts, policy advisors and civil society organisations (CSOs) to drive the research and innovation process with the principles of RRI in mind.
SIE provides a community for innovative thinkers from all 28 member states to come together and create a streamlined, vigorous social innovation field in Europe, to raise a shared voice, and to propel Europe to lead the practice of social innovation globally. A key focus of SIE III will be to help social innovators work together better and facilitate more cross border collaborations and projects. Euclid Network will focus its efforts on funding information for social innovators in Europe. Through various initiatives such as regular bulletins, social media Q&A sessions, video interviews with sector experts, in-depth analysis on forthcoming initiatives and targeted events, Euclid will widely disseminate information and advice on funding opportunities for social innovation in Europe.
