Collective members

National Sections and collective members reflect in their respective countries the dual anchor of CIRIEC, namely scientific research with and for managers/practitioners serving the general and collective interest.

At national level, the members of CIRIEC are companies and organizations active in public, social and cooperative economics; enterprises and structures associated with network-economics, either socio-political networks (government agencies, public administrations and ministries, socio-professional federations, trade unions,…) or technical networks (public utilities, public or regulated enterprises,…); enterprises and organizations from the “social economy” sector (cooperatives, mutuals, associations and foundations); experts and individual researchers from universities and research centers; and individuals with varied backgrounds interested in the fields of activity of CIRIEC.
