This week myself and Dr Shane O’Sullivan are attending the 7th International Social Enterprise Research Conference organised by the EMES network. The conference is being hosted by Sheffield Hallam University and it is the first time that the conference has been held in the United Kingdom.
The EMES International Research Network has held major international conferences since 2001 and gathers 14 established university research centres and nearly 400 individual researchers from over 50 countries to work on international research projects.
Shane and I are presenting two research papers at the conference, both relating to the InTSEnSE and SEDETT ERASMUS+ projects that we have been involved in.
There are 350 delegates at the conference looking at a wide variety of social enterprise research fields, however, the findings of the InTSEnSE project is one a two papers relating to the internationalisation of social enterprise and this demonstrates that the project is likely to have both practical, educational and academic impacts.
