Serus started operations in Brussels in 2002, through a conversion of Koopi´s (Cooperative Institute) Brussels office. Serus establishment is based on the long history and experience including Swedish Cooperative that was established in the mid-1980s. We have under our active years broadened and expanded the network and expertise that today forms our services. We have so far worked in areas such as business start ups in Brussels to evaluations, project applications and evaluations and national/European advocacy for the social economy.
For a long period of time we have also been working with the concept Social return on investment (SROI) through which outcomes, impact and values are measured and understood from a social, environmental and financial perspecive. Today we also work with SROI as a tool for organising and managing social investments.
Our values are based on a sustainability perspective. This means that everything we do and the services we offer strive to be socially, environmentally and financially sustainable.
We offer services in four main areas:
- Learning evaluation of projects
- Social return on investment
- Social investments
- Social economy and social enterprises
