  •     IT2[Bologna] - social and not social cooperatives’ consortium
  •     IMPRONTE SOCIALI [Ferrara] - social cooperatives’ consortium
  •     SIC [Bologna] - social cooperatives’ consortium


This group was born in January 2011 from the participation to the european LEONARDO project “The recycling cycle” and represents a fresh attempt at building a new alliance among players, roles and social-economic functions which are now halfway between competition and integration.

The association aims:

-    to promote social and occupational integration for disadvantaged people
-    to promote people training and support to systems for occupational inclusion of disadvantaged people.

Orius provides services for developing  projects, joining social integration and environmental sustainability.
The five members whose Orius is made up have a lot of experience of social business and are well integrated into their territory, this gives to the Association strength and reliability.
Orius is an effective member of RREUSE, the European federation of social enterprises with activities in the field of reuse and recycling.
