You are cordially invited to SE ecosystem event on the 9th of January 2020 at Wolfson Medical Building, University of Glasgow


You are cordially invited to attend a ‘SE ecosystems and trustworthy networks within the health care sector in Glasgow’ workshop on the 9th of January 2020. This workshop is part of a research project focusing on ‘Overcoming Deficiencies in health care sector through building trustworthy networks: A typology of different models of social initiatives. In particular, this research project investigated how different actors [such as social alliances, charities, social enterprises, cross sector partnerships and NGOs] can assist and relieve the burden that the health care sector is currently facing. These actors play a pivotal role through providing social assistance and innovation that creates social value for different end users. To ensure the continued success and scalability of social mission organizations, having a supportive SE ecosystem is of crucial.

The objective of this workshop is to: (1) summarize the key findings of the above-mentioned research project (2) share experiences/insights of successful social mission organizations in Scotland (3) offer specialist session focusing on measuring social impact, scalability and enhancing collaborations (4) engaging with key stakeholders within the Se ecosystem in a panel discussion

Finally, I should mention that financial support for this project is from the British Academy in the UK and is matched by funding from the Scientific and Technology Development Agency in Egypt. The objective of the Egyptian funding is to build on success stories and best practices in the UK in order to help Egyptian third sector organizations to overcome deficiencies inherent in the Egyptian health care sector.

Your participation is crucial for engaging with professionals and learning from your experiences and invaluable insights in building a supporting SE Ecosystems in the UK and Egypt. We are sincerely looking forward to your participation.
