The Observatory of New Forms of Social Entrepreneurship was launched in 2018, following the research activity carried out in the past by the Civil Economy Observatory and the input of the Social Entrepreneurship Committee established in the Chamber of commerce to map, promote and develop social enterprise in its various forms.
The Observatory’s main objective is to analyze new forms of social entrepreneurship and related networks, with a census of best practices and the production of thematic papers.
The main strands of activity are as follows:
- Taxonomy and consistency of the various forms of social entrepreneurship on a metropolitan scale
- Qualitative analysis of emerging models of social entrepreneurship
- Mapping social entrepreneurship networks and relationships between different actors in the system
- Production of specific reports and studies
