In 2012, due to the interaction between the Universidad Nacional del Litoral, the Government of the Province of Santa Fe and the Government of the City of Santa Fe, the Centro de Emprendedores de la Economía Social (CEES – Center for Entrepreneurs of the Social Economy) was created, in order to coordinate and to boost actions and policies aimed at strengthening SSE agents and practices.
Its goals include providing training and technical assistance through courses, conferences and workshops for the entrepreneurs of Social Economy, providing chances for cooperation and exchange between these stakeholders and linking credit lines for entrepreneurs with projects of Social Economy. In three years, this project has become a landmark in the region -approached by an increasing number of entrepreneurs willing to participate in the different proposals-, and 
successful experience of co-management of public policies.
