Applicability of business models to not-for-profit organizations

Universalia has been working on a research paper meant to understand whether or not the “business model” concept is applicable to not-for-profit organizations, and more particularly to research institutions in developing countries. Can we apply private sector knowledge and terminology to not-for-profit organizations? If so, how can this knowledge be used to ensure that these organizations remain relevant, attract more resources and are sustainable? Please help us understand these new concepts and ideas by commenting on the draft paper that we have prepared for the International Development Research Centre (IDRC).
