The IV North-Caucasus School of Social Entrepreneurship and Social Innovations began its work in the North Caucasus Federal University. When opening the plenary session, Alina Levitskaya (Rector, NCFU) stressed that the high attention paid to this field is due to the need for shaping a culture of social responsibility for business:

- I am happy to see so many students here. Young people generate new ideas, build plans and, given their energy, they ensure their fulfillment. The task of social entrepreneurship is to eliminate social problems. This is an innovative branch to apply effort. And our youngsters will be more efficient at this field, - Alina Levitskaya was quoted as saying.

Besides, Alina Levitskaya stressed that the NCFU is an acknowledged leader in the area of social entrepreneurship and together with the Center for Social Investment of the Heidelberg University, the NCFU develops degree programs, holds summer schools, and has already established an incubator for social entrepreneurs

Professor Rado Bohinc (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) mentioned a lot of fruitful cooperation going on between the NCFU and the University of Ljubljana. Speaking of the Slovenian experience, he mentioned that nowadays there are over 250 social enterprises, while there were none in 2011. These enterprises contribute a lot not only to the economy yet also to the development of the society at large.

The school will be held for three days including discussions, seminars, and lectures.
