4th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise, "If not for profit, for what? and how?"
As part of the 4th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise, "If not for profit, for what? and how?", which took place in July 1st to 4th 2003, Ana Luisa López, PhD and researcher of the INNOVA team, gave a presentation titled  "University Social Responsibility and Innovation (USRI), a model to evaluate the development and institutionalization of social innovation by universities".

During her presentation, the researcher made a description of the process and the results of a piece of research funded by the Alfa Tuning Latin American programme. 16 Latin American and European universities took part to the research project, under the leadership of the INNOVA team of the University of Deusto.

The 4th EMES International Research Conference on Social Enterprise was organised by the Centre for Social Economy at HEC Management School, University of Liege, Belgium. Around social enterprise and social entrepreneurship, the conference brought together research streams related to the third sector (non-profit sector, social economy, solidarity economy) and research communities focused on emerging themes such as social innovation, social impact assessment, hybrid organisations, social franchising and venture philanthropy, among others.

Apart from sharing the research results, Ana Luisa López had the chance to interchange knowledge on the university commitment towards social innovation and responsibility, its pedagogical and epistemological dimensions. She also had the opportunity to give further information about the work of the INNOVA team internationally and establish networks for collaboration and sharing knowledge.
