In this Tutor Academy student assistant role at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), you become part of SCENSUS, a project led by Dr Thomas Bauwens.

A glance at the SCENSUS project:

  • Introduce a new interdisciplinary theory of the dynamics of community enterprises within the wider political economy.
  • Advance the research frontier on collective action and organisation studies.
  • Change the current thinking about the role of markets and states as an inescapable dichotomy that dominates the way modern societies build institutions and organisations.
  • Contribute to emerging perspectives on a post-growth world and discover alternatives to capitalism.

Specifically, this project examines what role “meta-organisations”, such as Energie Samen, play in expanding the societal impact of community enterprises.

Together, we aim to map the defining characteristics of meta-organisations, which can help us to better understand the roles of those organisations in driving the movement of community enterprises.

Additionally, we strive to better understand the relationships those organisations have with individual community enterprises and the functions they fulfil in assisting those enterprises.
