ERNOP Science and Society Seminar Series 2021: Sustaining voluntary energy By Professor Lucas Meys

23 March 2021, 10-11 AM

Members of ERNOP produce the best of research on philanthropy within the continent, but only limited output makes it to the board rooms, decision tables and policies of philanthropic organizations. The gap between production and usage of academic knowledge is a waste of valuable resources. The ERNOP Science and Society Seminars are a monthly series of online seminars in which researchers from ERNOP philanthropy research centres and academic chairs present their state of the art work through online presentations.

Professor Lucas Meys from the Department of Business-Society Management at the Rotterdam School of Management will present a new model to sustain, preserve and grow volunteer energy as a resource. He will describe how voluntary energy can be grown in society and recycled (circular instead of linear) within the sector, by highlighting the important role of volunteer managers as stewards of this valuable resource.

Dafne is happy to support this initiative by ERNOP in bridging the academic research with philanthropy practitioners.
