Social Impact Manager

An Erasmus+ initiative that enhances the integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in business strategies.

GA number: 101111120

Funded by: Erasmus+      Duration: 31/05/2023-28/05/2026


The Social Impact Manager (SIM) initiative addresses the critical challenge of insufficient integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in business strategies. Despite a growing global consensus on the importance of CSR, with 87% of consumers expecting companies to operate sustainably, only 38% of businesses have established comprehensive CSR plans. This gap underscores a pressing need for a paradigm shift in how companies approach their social and environmental responsibilities. The SIM project aims to create a new managerial role that effectively integrates CSR into business models, ensuring companies contribute positively to societal and environmental well-being, in line with increasing stakeholder expectations.


The SIM project proposes a complementary and innovative approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), emphasising the social impact dimension of a company that intends to nurture and expand the link with its community of people and stakeholders (education providers–university and VET providers–, civil society and the entrepreneurial sector).


This entails a mapping and research activity aimed to assess the needs of both companies and local communities, as well as an engagement strategy that will create the SIM networks that will operate at local level.

Design and development of the SIM Education programme that will be launched in the 5 target countries (Austria, Croatia, Greece, France, Italy). The programmes will address young and adult professionals and will be aimed to build their capacities to work together with companies in generating social impact at local level and launch the job profile of the Social Impact Manager.

This will follow the programme development and perform a thorough quali-quantitative impact assessment and analysis of the training, including plans for exploiting its full potential after the official end of the project, as well as of the social, economic and environmental change generated by the initiative.
