The core objectives of the project are: a) to analyze the structures and dynamics of social entrepreneurship in Portugal; b) to make policy recommendations for social entrepreneurship in the fields of employment and education/training, organizational and management models.Methodology: The aim is to meet these objectives through an approach based on three analytical axes, combining both extensive and intensive methodologies, the latter based on participatory action research. These events shall be included in a documentary about social entrepreneurship for informative and didactic purposes, in order to disseminate this concept to regional and local communities and to society in general. A platform of social entrepreneurship, that can be accessed free of charge, will be one of the innovative products of the project, which shall include the documentary, a bibliographic database, a repository of public policies, a database of teaching/training institutions, and pedagogical guidelines, among a wide array of products generated during 3 years of project and that come to be regarded as relevant for dissemination purposes.
