Our knowledge-sharing extends to our global partners in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Our approach has developed over the past 8 years through a number of channels:
A variety of dedicated courses at Bachelor, Masters, PhD, and executive level, at LSE and partner universities in South Asia and Africa (e.g. the LSE-UCT programme)
On-site, evidence-based student consulting projects with social entrepreneurs, companies with social goals, and NGOs in South Asia, Africa and South America
Our active global community of hundreds of alumni from these courses
Many on-site workshops in South Asia, West, East and Southern Africa, and South America with local social start-ups, and global and local companies and NGOs, to grow and scale up new social ventures
Research and managerial articles, key notes at conferences, blogs.
In terms of the Social Development Goals (SDGs), we are currently mostly engaged in four programmes: primary and secondary education and skills training (SDG4), health care (SDG3) agriculture (SDG2), and those nurturing entrepreneurs themselves - for example, at incubators (SDG10, creating productive employment and inclusive growth); with each of them aiming to end extreme poverty and inequality (SDG8).
Our lab researchers publish consistently in the top journals in their field and are funded by major, competitive research grants, such as Leverhulme, Dutch National Science Foundation, and recently, the £1+ Mio advanced European Research Council grant.
