Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship
Research for Action Seminar Series
The Skoll Centre’s Research for Action Network promotes research that generates actionable insights for social entrepreneurship: the combination of opportunity, innovation, and resourcefulness to address unjust and unsatisfactory systems and practices.
This term’s Skoll Centre Seminar series explores how researchers can contribute to social impact through collaborative approaches and evidence-based decision making. Our speakers are five Oxford-based early career researchers from a variety of disciplines embracing work in health, development, and environmental fields.
