Preschool remodelling through systemic (ex)change by Malin Lindberg, Mia Heikkila, Jennie Schaeffer, Cecilia Nordquist Abstract: Based on the experiences from a social innovation process of Swedish preschool remodelling aiming to enhance equal and inclusive learning and play the study investigates socio-material dimensions in complex multi-actor/level (ex)change. Previous studies on systemic change through social innovation ecosystems help reveal dynamics and challenges in the coordination of varying logics and interests among the involved preschools, municipality, architectural firm, universities and innovation agency. The shared appreciation of equal preschools as universally good and desirable, served to conceal contestations of the principal aspirations of innovative socio-material transformation, instead conceptualising it as conflicting institutional logics and lacking cross-institutional coordination. The study further confirms that the large complex sys-tems that characterise formal education may hamper innovation by its high degree of inertia, while distinguishing a potential for enhanced innovation through participatory, empowering approaches in social innovation ecosystems. Keywords: education; equality; participatory research; preschool; social innovation; systemic change.
Influence of entrepreneurial competencies and motivations on social entrepreneurship intention: an empirical study related to Tunisia by Ines BEN CHIKHA Abstract: Recently, social entrepreneurship has attracted a great deal of attention from scholars, practitioners and policy makers since it presents one of the main solutions for solving social, economic and environmental problems. To participate in this research area, we carry out in this work an empirical investigation of the impact of both entrepreneurial competencies and motivations on the formation on the social entrepreneurial intention based on 310 questionnaires from Tunisians who are pursuing incubation programs in the context of social entrepreneurship. Using the partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) method, we have shown that entrepreneurial competencies and motivations positively influence social entrepreneurial intention. This reinforces the conclusions that said entrepreneurial competencies and motivations have an effect on entrepreneurship in general. In addition, these findings may attract the attention of incubators who can act on these two determinants to stimulate social entrepreneurship. Keywords: Social entrepreneurial intention; entrepreneurial competencies; entrepreneurial motivations; PLS-SEM.
