Symposium: ‘From science to society: evidence-based lessons for (cooperative) social enterprises’

17/02/2023 @ 11:00 15:45

We have invited eleven fellow-scientists from various universities and different disciplines to talk about their research findings. What is the meaning of their research for society, particularly for citizen collectives, commons, and cooperative social enterprises. What insights from science can people put into practice on a daily basis?
