I am professor in learning, social innovation and evaluation at the Department for People and Technology at Roskilde University and co-director of the Center for Social Entrepreneurship (CSE). I also engage very much with PhD student and head the Doctoral School for People and Technology at RUC.
I have a strong interest in the micro-processes of social enterprise, social entrepreneurship, social economy and social innovation like entrepreneuring, innovating and coproducing, intersectionality, gender and generation, learning, culture and hybridity as well as macro-processes like how the welfare state hinders, facilitates and is being transformed be the SE’s.
I am a nominee from CSE and am very pleased to state, that our engagement in EMES will continue and be strengthened by the dedicated full academic staff at CSE. For the past decades, CSE has been involved in almost all the variety of EMES activities: planning and executing research networks, conferences, summer schools, strategic policy works as well as research proposals and other carry outs. I – and CSE colleagues – value the strengths of EMES so far: research-based networks including early-stage and longtime experienced researchers, engaging scholars from many places in the world, providing insights in cutting-edge research and facilitating research funding.
