Collaboration with foreign research centers

CenSE structurally collaborates with CeFEO, Centre for Family Entrepreneurship and Ownership.

Practice-oriented research

CenSE performs innovative and high-quality practice-oriented scientific research into sustainable entrepreneurship at family businesses and SMEs. Our research themes come from the professional field and always lead to usable output for the professional field. In addition, our research also leads to publications in applied, practice-oriented and academic journals and various media.

CenSE mainly conducts research in Flanders and Brussels where the Odisee campuses are located. We enter into broader national, European and international alliances in function of the sustainable management of family businesses and SMEs based in Flanders and Brussels. The funding for this research is therefore diverse (local, regional, international, etc.), but CenSE ensures that scientific independence and integrity are guaranteed.
