The very first Social Enterprise World Forum Academic Symposium: Advancing Social Enterprise Research, Teaching and Engagement will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, UK on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th September 2018, prior to the main Social Enterprise World Forum 2018 in Edinburgh.
The key role of universities in the transformation of societies has long been acknowledged, and there are many examples of universities engaging with, supporting, and learning from, social enterprises to develop and transform communities throughout the world.
The Social Enterprise World Forum 2018 is an international event for social enterprises from all over the world to come together, share wisdom, build networks and discuss how to create a more sustainable future. This is the first time that a symposium has been dedicated to the role of academia under the auspices of the SEWF, and we invite papers on the following topics:
Stream 1: Advancing social enterprise research
Empirical, theoretical and methodological papers focused on developing scientific knowledge of social enterprise
Stream 2: Advancing social enterprise teaching
Developments, approaches or pedagogical challenges in teaching social enterprise
Stream 3: Advancing social enterprise engagement
Reflections on lessons learned from universities and social enterprises working together in partnership, whether locally or internationally.
