Short description of project
The main specific feature of the ICSEM Project is its geographic coverage: it aims to compare social enterprise models and their respective institutionalisation processes across the world. It thus relies on the participation of a large number of Research Partners from all regions, who contribute country-specific or field-specific analysis of social enterprise models. Of course, contributions comparing social enterprise models in two or more countries are welcome as well.  
Short description of the task performed by Croatian partner
Axis 1: Country contributions: Context, concepts, models The first major axis includes three parts. It aims to understand SE-related context and concepts in each country (Part A), to identify SE models (Part B) and to describe their institutional trajectories (Part C). The major outputs of this first research axis are country studies, published as ICSEM Working Papers.   Axis 2: Building up an international database on social enterprise The second major axis corresponds to the collection of data about the SE models identified in the first axis, on the basis of a common questionnaire. These data will feed international comparative analysis within the Project’s third axis, with a view to proposing—among other results—a worldwide typology of SE models. The questionnaire was developed through an interactive process with ICSEM Research Partners. The final versions of the Questionnaire and of the Interview and Coding Guide were sent to all Research Partners in February 2015. A LimeSurvey version of the Questionnaire was also made available to all participating Research Partners for the on-line coding of the collected data. For each SE model identified, Research Partners are to collect and code data for three or four social enterprises that are representative of the model. The data collection and on-line coding processes are to be completed by March 2017.
