    Los procesos de desarrollo local/rural requieren la concurrencia en el territorio de factores muy diversos (económicos, sociales, culturales, etc.), así como de un considerable esfuerzo de cohesión económica y social en el que deben implicarse las fuerzas vivas del territorio, entre las cuales se encuentran las empresas de la Economía Social. El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la relevancia del subsector empresarial de la Economía Social en el proceso de desarrollo local en Castilla y León, con especial referencia al mundo rural. De acuerdo con ello, partiendo de la identificación de los aspectos fundamentales que caracterizan el desarrollo local como elemento de reestructuración productiva (origen, factores condicionantes y espacios productivos típicos), en el trabajo se describen sus vínculos con el sector de la Economía Social. A continuación, se analiza, desde una perspectiva aplicada, la contribución de las empresas de la Economía Social al desarrollo endógeno local/rural de Castilla y León en términos de empleo y producción. Los datos requeridos para llevar a cabo este análisis proceden, además de las fuentes estadísticas oficiales, de los resultados de una encuesta propia realizada a las empresas de la Economía Social en Castilla y León. Local/rural development processes require the presence in the territory of many different factors (economic, social, cultural, etc.) as well as a considerable economic and social cohesion in which should be engaged the forces of the territory, among which are the enterprises of the Social Economy. The aim of this paper is to analyze the relevance of the business sector of the Social Economy in the process of local development in Castilla y León, with special reference to rural areas. Accordingly, based on the identification of the fundamental aspects that characterize the development as part of economic restructuring (origin, production factors and spaces typical), the paper describes its links with the Social Economy sector. Later, it analyzes, from an applied perspective, the contribution of the Social Economy enterprises to local/rural endogenous development of Castilla y León in terms of employment and production. The data to conduct this analysis is based, in addition to those obtained from the official statistical sources, on the results of a own survey conducted to the Social Economy enterprises in Castilla y León.
