EU funded projects



Founded in 1987 in Graz, Austria, ISOP – INNOVATIVE SOZIALPROJEKTE has more than three decades of experience in successfully planning, initiating and managing projects in the areas of social inclusion, education, counseling and employment. With a focus on an intercultural approach and on diversity, ISOP supports people with migrant backgrounds, asylum seekers, refugees as well as (long-term) unemployed people and individuals with deficiencies in (basic) education.

Over the years, ISOP has also acquired a wide range of expertise in managing projects (co-)funded by the European Union. Starting in 1999 with EU projects from previous programming periods (e.g.  ADAPT and the EQUAL Community Initiative), we have acquired an expansive professional knowledge in coordinating/working with innovative transnational projects as well as development partnerships.
