Social Economy Scientific Conference
At SES2020, a vibrant network of distinguished researchers and academic scholars will discuss how the future of social economy could and should look like, providing an original contribution to the rethinking of our socio-economic spaces. The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has increased the visibility of the social economy’s contribution to socio-economic development and social cohesion, demonstrating that it is an essential part of Europe’s safety net in times of crisis, thanks to its leadership in providing essential goods and services to the most deprived. Therefore social economy could play an important role in the recovery phase. SES2020 will look at the social economy as a driver of change, and on this basis will discuss how social economy will contribute to bounce forward our societies in the next normal.
The European Commission is the EU's politically independent executive arm. It is alone responsible for drawing up proposals for new European legislation, and it implements the decisions of the European Parliament and the Council of the EU.
