SOWOSEC – Social Work and Social Economy programme – cooperation of European social work universities

The Faculty of Social Studies of the University of Ostrava collaborates closely with European social work universities under the programme Social work and Social economy, so called SOWOSEC. Representatives of these universities meet on a regular basis and discuss SOWOSEC’s current issues. One of the outputs is also extending the accreditation of the programme ‘Management of Social Work Organisations’ by a Joint Degree, which means that the students complete some part of the study plan in collaboration with the universities abroad, such as Fachhochschule Campus Wien and Trnava University in Trnava. SOWOSEC’s guarantor is Mgr. Šárka Kopřivová, Ph.D. from the Faculty of Social Studies, University of Ostrava. Further information is available on
