1st General ICSEM Meeting

1st General ICSEM Meeting

The 1st General ICSEM Meeting that took place in Helsinki on June 29-30, 2015, just before the 5th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise, brought together some 90 researchers from close to 40 countries.

The agenda of the meeting included discussion of the Project’s first phase—taking stock of the achievements so far in terms of editing and publication of Working Papers, organization of ICSEM meetings and preparation of the data collection. The Project’s second phase and the preparation of joint books and special issues of journals were also presented during the morning.

During the afternoon, issues linked to data collection on SE models were discussed. The two Scientific Coordinators, Jacques Defourny and Marthe Nyssens, presented a tentative typology of SE models. The participants were then split in several groups to discuss regional publication projects.
