SEFORÏS Final Newsletter - March 2017
View this email in your browser
SEFORÏS is a multi-disciplinary research programme that investigates the potential of social enterprises to enhance the inclusiveness of societies. 
After almost 3.5 years of research, numerous conferences, thousands of data collected, tens of publications and loads of positive energy it's time to say goodbye. This is however not an end point. The SEFORÏS project has brought about a treasure of data which will continue to be the basis of academic papers, country reports and future research. It's an agenda that is here to stay.
We are extremely happy with all the support and encouragement that we received through the past years. We are also convinced that this type of research should be continued in the future and we will therefore continue to work on more structural finance to organise the continuation of this type of data collection. 
It is only because of scientifically strong data, and the translation of those data into recommendations, that policy makers can introduce solid measures. The more we know, the better we can support social entrepreneurs and innovators worldwide.
