EURICSE - European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises


Euricse (European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises) is a research centre founded in 2008 designed to promote knowledge development and innovation for the field of cooperatives, social enterprises, commons and nonprofit organizations. Euricse focuses on all forms of private organizations and enterprises that pursue purposes other than profit, are characterized by participatory management models, and adopt a development approach that blends social and economic well being. Euricse combines multidisciplinary research, training, and consulting services, in order to develop better knowledge on this kind of enterprises, and to create and promote ownership, governance and management models tailored to their characteristics. Euricse carries out four types of activities: Research: to conduct and support theoretical and empirical research projects that are interdisciplinary and comparative in nature; Training: to design and organise training programs aimed at the professional development of young researchers and at enhancing the skills and knowledge of those who work in non-profit enterprises and cooperative organizations; Consulting: to offer consulting services to non-profit organisations, cooperatives and social enterprises, as well as to local, national and international public institutions; Communications: to share and promote research and findings through publications, presentations, conferences and seminars for researchers and the general public.
