How can social economy and business collaborate for social impact?

Business as usual and the social economy are often dealt as independent sectors. But, over time we attested in Europe experimental forms of impact-oriented collaboration between the two, bringing an important innovative potential and concrete impact on communities.

Under the leadership of Technopolis, in partnership with other international research centers, LAMA carried out an impact study on the topic, elaborating a collaborative evaluation model, co-created with experts, companies and stakeholders. The study was commissioned by EASME (EU Commission) as a follow up to the European Social Business Initiative.
