The action main lines:
The Brazil center has three main lines of action:
1) Its long term involvement in the RLS Energy network in order to confer it a social dimension
2) Its association with the CIRAD local office of Belem in order to implement a closed cooperation
3) The organization of cycles of annual scientific conferences about the topic of the Brazilian social entrepreneurship, particularly in the form of study days in various Brazilian towns.
