Success is an Erasmus+ supported project led by Comparative Research Network based in Germany. The project partnership is formed by 7 different institutions coming from six European countries (Germany, UK, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Poland)

The Project


Supporting Critical Funding for European Social Economy and the 3rd Sector. The project will contribute especially to provide innovative tools to find alternative funding for social enterprises across Europe, helping them to manage the outfall of the current economic threats on the one hand, but as well will help them to generate outreach and community building towards their target audiences.





The project will develop 2 main outcomes:

  • The project will publish a benchmarking study that summarises the Crowdfunding scenario across partner countries, and incorporates data for the whole of the EU via meta-research. This benchmarking study sets the current scene in alternative financing and will highlight the needs of the sector.
  • A comprehensive suite of Learning materials, including Learning Modules, Presentations, checklists, videos and Hints and Tips, quizzes in an electronic e-book format in 5 languages covering the following areas not currently catered for in the 3rd sector.


This is a 2 year long project.

 Our team is currently working on the first research phase of the project and preparing our analysis on Crowdfunding within our partners countries, please check back for updates.
