Doctoral Seminar in Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy
The Chairs in Philanthropy and in Social Enterprise Management at the Center for Social Economy (HEC-ULg) and the ESSEC Chairs in Philanthropy and in Social Entrepreneurship are co-organizing a doctoral seminar in social entrepreneurship and philanthropy. The aim is to foster the development of academic research on philanthropy issues in Europe.
The seminar aims to equip doctoral students with theoretical and methodological skills for doing research in the field of social entrepreneurship and philanthropy. Based on the critical analysis of theoretical and empirical articles, students will get acquainted with several research avenues in the field and their connections with broader approaches in economics, entrepreneurship and organization theory. They will then be asked to locate their own research project regarding the extant literature and to discuss their upcoming research agenda with the scholars and the other students. The seminar is integrated within the range of dynamics on social entrepreneurship and philanthropy in which both institutions are engaged and is connected to international research networks in these domains such as EMES (social enterprise/entrepreneurship) and ERNOP (philanthropy).
This is a 3-day, 5-ECTS seminar taking place in Brussels, Paris and Liege between November 2015 and February 2016. The deadline for applications is 15 November 2015.
