USE2015 – Conference on Understanding Small Enterprises
21-23 October 2015, Groningen, The Netherlands
One of the characteristics of a small business is its interconnectedness with its environment or network: customers, suppliers, partners, employees, and the communities in which it resides. The networked nature of small businesses gives rise to the subtheme of USE2015: “A Healthy Working Life in A Healthy Business”. The organizers welcome papers on substantial, original and unpublished research on any issue relevant to the conference. Especially welcome are abstracts on topics directly related to the three main conference themes: 1. Healthy and safe working environments at SMEs 2. Health organizations as small businesses 3. SMEs in a networked society.
The USE conference will be held for the third time (previously in 2013 (Australia); 2009 (Denmark)) and provides a forum to enhance our understanding of small enterprises as well as has a unique focus on the well-being of both people and business.

2 years of NOPOOR research: Enhancing Knowledge for Renewed Policies against Poverty
20 November 2014, Brussels
The NOPOOR project will be evaluated at mid-term by the European Commission (DG RTD) on 20th November 2014. The Consortium will have to emphasise the extent to which the work done tends towards achieving the objectives written in the DoW (description of work). With this occasion, several scientific programmes will be presented to the audience, in order to expose the current state of the research.
The NOPOOR project addresses poverty through new lens and multiple angles. Seven main topics discuss the multidimensionality of poverty: concepts and measurement, international aid, impact of globalisation, labour market and informal sector, education and social policies, role of the state and scenarios for the future. After more than two years, the first results are now being released, mostly represented by study cases. Some of the studies have been presented during the Dakar policy seminar in June 2014 which involved several West African policy makers. Furthermore, individual papers were presented during various seminars and were also submitted to international journals.
