The CSI's main research topics are:

  • Social investment and measuring the social impact of investments on welfare
  • Foundation system, foundation strategies, strategies with a great leverage effect
  • Civil society and social economy
  • Nonprofit leadership and social entrepreneurship
  • Governance in the Third Sector.
  • We undertake national, international and comparative research projects with special emphasis on the European level.

    With its research program the CSI contributes to:

  • the basic theoretical understanding,
  • practice-oriented knowledge in the welfare-oriented sector,
  • political and strategic debates.
  • In this way, we seek to bring the issue of social investments into scientific debates and disciplines from an interdisciplinary perspective. The main disciplines - we focus on - are social and educational science, economy, law as well as ethics and theology.

    In order to support the academic teaching on nonprofit management, we are working to generate a collection of case studies on the above-mentioned topics.
