We launched a new section on EMES website
EMPOWER-SE was awarded last June to EMES through the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) framework after a hard selection process where over 700 proposals where received and only 35 were funded.
This year’s EMES International Research Conference entitled “Social enterprise for sustainable societies” featured numerous papers by authors whose work represent groundbreaking theoretical or methodological research in the area of social and solidarity economy.
Board members play a critical role in the development and success of EMES. The EMES Board of Directors has 12 members who are committed volunteers, holding the responsibility to ensure the fulfilment of organization’s core values and its mission.
We are delighted to announce the publication of EMES 2016 Annual Report, which reflects past year’s successes with members and partners of the EMES community of researchers, including PhDs.
The 6th EMES International Research Conference is only 10 days away. Now it is the best moment to express our appreciation to the Bernheim Foundation, a crucial supporter of the conference, whose contribution helped making this extraordinary event happen.
6EMESconf will welcome 350 participants from 41 different countries; a mix of scholars, researchers and practitioners from different parts of the world. That means that this year’s conference also sees impressive number of participants coming from non-OECD countries and outside the European continent.
We expect the conference to generate a wealth of interesting papers and insights, and we look forward to offering a potential space for such reflections in the pages of the journal.
The final edition of selected conference papers from 2nd EMES-Polanyi international seminar has been published on June 15, 2017
Call for applications: selection of members of the multi-stakeholder platform on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in the EU.
During the 6th EMES conference we will feature the specific topic “Social Finance”: a new form of finance where creation of economic value can be integrated into one with sustainable social and environmental development.
A special issue of the Nonprofit Policy Forum journal, edited by Denis Young, focused on work integration social enterprises (WISEs) is now available on De Gruyter online.
