SEPHI
___

In order to train the next generation, the Chair participates in the organisation of an innovative doctoral seminar, bringing together doctoral students in management and social sciences working on social entrepreneurship, philanthropy, or the intersection of the two themes. The SEPHI seminar is co-organised with our colleagues from HEC Liège and EM Lyon business school.

After two editions organised at ESSEC Business School, the third edition, which was supposed to take place this year at HEC Liège, was finally organised online due to the pandemic.
