Chair of Social Entrepreneurship

On 1 May 2016, Professor Harry Hummels was appointed Professor of Social Entrepreneurship at Utrecht University.


This was the first Chair in Social Entrepreneurship to be established in the Netherlands. Together with two PhD students, Professor Hummels conducts research into innovation in the international value chain, starting with the value chain for cocoa. We conduct research into the cocoa supply chain of the future because we want to help shape a sustainable vision for the cocoa industry as a whole.
