Social impact measurement is an increasingly popular subject. In the social economy, it tends to influence current practices, generates enthusiasm, but also distrust. After three years of work on these issues, TIESS is organizing a day of convergence to bring into focus the potential and limits of impact measurement for the social economy.
You are a social economy network, a funder, a support organization, an evaluation expert or a researcher working on these issues? This event was designed for you.
