INNOVA eG  - Germany

 

Innova eG is a German cooperative whose mission is to deliver training and advice for

new co-operatives.

 

Since August 2006, the reform of the co-operative law in Germany has introduced the possibility

to set up co-operatives also for the promotion of the social and cultural interest of its members.

Through this reform it has become possible to increase the number and activities of co-operatives in this field.

Moreover, through the reform it has become easier to establish small sized co-operatives.

 

Innova eG offers a set of professional services for new co-operatives, in particular:

 

- Organisation of training courses for co-operative development workers ;

 

- Replication systems for new co-operatives;

 

- Central development agency in Germany for self help, social and cultural co-operatives;

 

- Research and promotion work on co-operative issues;

 

- Transnational work in the field of Social Economy.
