It is TSI’s third stakeholder event in Brussels, following the first stakeholder seminar in October 2014 where TSI gathered the input of third sector networks and EU policy makers on impact and challenges at EU-level and a workshop with national statistical agencies and several DGs in June this year to drive data collection on third sector activity across Europe.

Third Sector Impact

Third Sector Impact (TSI) is a comparative research project that aims to measure and outline the scope, scale, and impact of associations and foundations, volunteers and citizens engaging in civil society across Europe, generally referred to as the “third sector”. It includes a distinctive stakeholder engagement process to capture the insights of third sector practitioners to work towards a common goal: to create knowledge that will help researchers, policy-makers and citizens alike to further advance the sector’s contributions to the socio-economic development of Europe.
