Social Entrepreneurship ‘National Expert’ in our own backyard !

OECD report

 

Jo Barraket, Associate Professor in the QUT Business School, was acknowledged as a national expert on social entrepreneurship by the OECD and consequently invited to provide expert services and an address to them in Trento, Italy on the role of the social economy and social entrepreneurship in job creation. As a result of this work, Australia was included in comparative research on the issue undertaken by the OECD. The report ‘JOB CREATION THROUGH THE SOCIAL ECONOMY AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP’ has just been released and is now available.
