On the first day of the Futures Entrepreneurship Centre International Week, a panoramic view of research state on social innovation will be unfolded followed by the national case studies on social entrepreneurial ventures and their evaluation methods in Poland and Germany.
The speakers will present the current state of social entrepreneurship scholarship and relevant methodologies applied in the area. The pressing question will be posed: how to measure social value in enterprise and who will benefit from it? The day will culminate with a debate on the role of sustainability in business growth and ethical dilemmas which accompany social responsibility in business.
This day will be structured as a mini-academic symposium and will invite researchers, undergraduate and postgraduate students who want to enrich their knowledge of international contexts in enterprise, evaluative methods and business ethics.
