Universities enabling social enterprise: delivering benefits for all

Report page
This report highlights some of the good work happening in universities to support social enterprise activity.

This includes student placements in an existing social enterprise, university staff and researchers procuring or providing services to social enterprises, or even students setting up their own businesses. Whatever the form of activity, there are wide ranging benefits for students, staff and the wider community.

The report also looks at areas where there are opportunities to strengthen further the relationship between universities and social enterprises.
