Pre-SEWF Conference Research Day

From Bridging to Bonding: Examining the social enterprise research - practice continuum  

Mount Royal University and Simon Fraser University
in collaboration with
the Social Enterprise World Forum

Date: October 1, 2013
Location: Mount Royal University, Calgary

The Institute for Nonprofit Studies at Mount Royal University and Simon Fraser University are co-hosting a research day in collaboration with the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF-2013). We want to take advantage of researchers and practitioners who will be coming to Calgary from around the world to explore the multiple connections between social enterprise research and practice.

Too often practitioners and researchers find themselves on either side of a linguistic, technical, and cultural divide. Yet it must be acknowledged that practice draws on research findings and research rarely occurs in isolation from practice. How then can this relationship be explored in a way that honours the contribution of both researchers and practitioners? This dedicated research day will address four themes:

· Conducting social enterprise research in partnerships
· Social enterprise and the university: roles, responsibilities, and challenges
· Policy research for social enterprise: an international perspective
· What drives innovation in social enterprise?
