Key stakeholders

Key SE stakeholders (practitioners and policy makers) are increasingly seeking reliable knowledge from the scientific community to improve their understanding of SEs. Therefore, if we want to advance knowledge and to develop evidence-based policy for fostering a sustainable SE eco-system, there is an urgent need to engage a pluri-disciplinary dialogue to grasp the challenges and opportunities presented by the SE field. It is also imperative to link research efforts to the vast diversity of empirical developments in the SE field to achieve this and activate, train and facilitate networking opportunities for researchers, while connecting them with a diversity of SE stakeholders.

Two leading stakeholders, Social Economy Europe and Ashoka, have joined EMPOWER-SE with a view on participating in some of the initiatives of the Action. Other stakeholder representatives will have a chance to participate in the local stakeholder talks in parallel to all major events of the Action. We will keep a list of participating stakeholders per country, which will be updated periodically:
