EMES International Research Network will be hosting 40 PhD students and early-career researchers (ECR) for the 8th edition of Training School “The key role of social enterprises and the social and solidarity economy in post-pandemic societies” in Seville (Spain) from June 20-23, 2022.
The EMES International Training school seeks to reinforce the knowledge of its participants who conduct research in the “SE fields” – social enterprise, social entrepreneurship, social economy and solidarity economy, and social innovation. At the same time, these schools offer a unique environment in which supportive relationships between researchers and PhD students are created. Those relationships serve as the basis for a future professional and personal network.
This year’s edition will focus on exploring how (post-) pandemic societies deal with new socio-economic and environmental challenges and, more precisely, how social enterprises can contribute to finding viable and sustainable solutions that improve people’s lives.
While having some of the brightest members of the future generation of researchers and mentors in the “SE field”, we count on the participation of Cooperatives Europe, the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC), sector representatives such as FAECTA and social enterprises from Andalusia.
There have been seven successful editions of the EMES training schools so far held; at the University of Corsica (France) in 2008; the Roskilde University (Denmark) in 2010; the University of Trento (Italy) in 2012; the West University of Timișoara (Romania) in 2014; the Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow (UK) in 2016; the Aix-Marseille University in Aix-Provence (France) in 2018; and a blended learning format led by University College Cork (Ireland) in 2020 and face-to-face edition in Teruel in 2021.
Some 200 PhD candidates and early career researchers (ERC) from over 40 countries have participated in these unique learning events.
