The POWER DSP will contribute to the Europe 2020 social policy objectives, to enable large-scale social innovation in order to tackle specific social challenges and support the uptake of the Horizon 2020 programme results. It will be a Digital Social Platform for innovation and growth, by engaging on a large scale with stakeholders in the co-creation and delivery of digital products and services to citizens involving awareness-raising, new policy initiatives and deployment.
