SEFORÏS: discover the current status of social entrepreneurship!

This is the most exciting part of such a multi-disciplinary, multi-method international research project… Discover the first SEFORÏS findings!

 

The SEFORÏS project is a multi-disciplinary, multi-method international research project on social enterprises funded by the European Commission. Through the generation of robust evidence and a focus on internationally leading research, SEFORÏS aims to better understand the role that social enterprises play in the EU and beyond in the development of and evolution towards inclusive and innovative societies.

Between April 2015 and December 2015, the SEFORÏS consortium surveyed over 1 000 social enterprises in Hungary, Romania, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Russia and China. As a result, and thanks to diligent cooperation from social enterprises and funding from the European Union, we have been able to launch the world’s largest and most rigorous panel database on social enterprises.

The country reports available on the SEFORÏS website will offer you interesting findings in the way social enterprises operate, how they are funded (or not) and which business models they follow. 

In addition, we invite you to read the article written about our project on the Stanford Social Innovation review!

You can already save the date: the SEFORIS final conference will take place on  March 16th and 17th , 2017 in Brussels!
