Kick-off meeting of the IAP-SOCENT programme
The IAP-SOCENT research programme is funded as an Interuniversity Attraction Pole (IAP) by the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO). It is coordinated by the Centre for Social Economy of the University of Liege and involves three other Belgian universities (Université Libre de Bruxelles, Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Université catholique de Louvain). The programme will be carried out over a five-year period (2012-2017); it will aim to build interdisciplinary and integrated knowledge on social entrepreneurship and social enterprise. Its kick-off meeting, which took place in Brussels on 9 November 2012, brought together some 35 researchers (among which 12 professors) from the four participating Belgian universities.
