CEPS is part of a European consortium, led by European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises and International Research Network EMES, which conducted a study “Mapping of Social Enterprises and their Eco-systems in Europe”, funded by the European Commission.
The study aims to evaluate the state and development of social enterprise – as defined by the Social Business Initiative (SBI) in different countries (21 EU + 7 non-EU countries), including:
- the current state of play in terms of typical forms, estimated number, key characteristics and role of social enterprises
- main barriers faced by social enterprises
- the main developments and initiatives which have been taken or are under preparation, expected to influence the social enterprise development.
