    • Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore together with Graduate School of Business and Society (ALTIS) and E4Impact Foundation are delighted to have hosted in 2021 the 13th International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC). We have been grateful to have had the chance of organizing a dual mode conference in pan-demic times, because it allowed a great group of scholars and researchers to start meeting again in presence in our Milanese campus, but also it ensured anyone who wants to join the event virtually. The conference title was: "Enabling the change! Social innovation and enterprises for a better future”. By following the leading impactful research being undertaken in the recent years, the conference focuses on how we may move towards fair and sustainable societies through social innovation and social entrepreneurial initiatives. This topic is aligned with the purposes of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, and it matches with the mission of both ALTIS and E4Impact Foundation. In particular, the Graduate School of Business and Society (ALTIS) since 2005 is committed to foster knowledge and practices round corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sus-tainability, as a place where academics, professionals, entrepreneurs and managers, as well as talented youths, meet and debate turning managerial culture for sustainable development and impact entrepreneurship into reality. Similarly, E4Impact Founda-tion aims at forging new generations of African social entrepreneurs, by bringing education programs in African countries and working actively with local Universi-ties to foster the development of such impact-oriented initiatives.
