Recently, RurInno researchers have published further results of the project work. Ralph Richter (IRS/Germany) discusses in his peer reviewed article the question of “How inclusive governance benefits and limits the social innovativeness of social enterprises”. Richard Lang and Matthias Fink (IFI/Austria) introduce a conceptual framework for systematic investigation of rural social entrepreneurship that is informed by both social capital theory and place-based entrepreneurship literature. Both publications add to a list of scientific articles, policy briefs, toolkits and media reports disseminating the findings of the research and training project.
