The partnership is a win-win relation of collaboration and coordination between several organizations interested in working towards common goals by exploiting the complementary of their skills and approaches.

Part&Act is a program offered by IMS Luxembourg to its members companies and to its associate members (associations, NGO or SIS with a social or environmental impact). The aim of this program is to facilitate and raise awareness among IMS member companies to maintain privileged relationships with associations as part of the Company-Association partnerships.

To help you develop your own actions, we:

  • Act as interface between companies and the non-profit sector;
  • Set up partnership projects;
  • Ensure the follow-up of your partnership.

Building a partnership
A strategic partnership must meet the objectives and needs of both structures that wish to collaborate.


Why collaborate?

  • To mobilize new resources or skills needed to carry out a project;
  • To increase the impact of its message throughout the company and dialogue with its ecosystem; 
  • To strengthen its territorial anchorage and develop a network of volunteers.  
  • To concretely implement an aspect of its CSR strategy and develop more responsible practices;
  • To improve internal cohesion, give meaning to its employees and enhance their competencies; 
  • To reinforce the reputation and visibility of the company.  


What kind(s) of partnership(s)?

Skills workshops aim at providing social enterprises with the time and skills of corporate volunteers. Various workshops will be organized collectively or individually around pre-identified skills needs.

Through these skills workshops, social enterprises can also bring their expertise (environment, disability, integration) to the IMS Luxembourg member companies and support them in the evolution of their CSR practices.

The Part&Act Speed Meeting (or Market Place) is a unique and friendly event in Luxembourg dedicated to meetings and exchanges between the business and social sectors. The informal and relaxed setting allows you to meet new people and discover new opportunities for collaboration.

This Speed Meeting is, therefore, a place of inspiration and discovery, but also the first step towards partnerships with an impact that allows us to contribute together to better social inclusion, environmental protection, and societal innovations.


Skills, Goods or Services Exchanges
Discovery and inspiration
Innovative partnerships

During the event, each association has a mini-stand where it can share its expertise, skills, and experience, but also raise awareness among companies about its field of action while increasing its visibility.

Companies are invited to meet them to get to know each other, introduce themselves, exchange on each other's needs, discuss collaboration possibilities, and perhaps sign a partnership project.

Last edition
The Market Place, the name given to the Speed Meeting during this edition, enabled 12 partnerships in 2 hours of exchanges on 4 July 2018 at the Centre Culturel Scheiss with Luxembourg City's support.
A preparation workshop was held in May to prepare the associations to present their offers and need to companies.
