Sustainable Socioeconomic Development
This platform explores how sustainable practices can be introduced, maintained and improved within a market-based society. Best practice insights, actions and policies will be suggested with the purpose of building a more sustainable society. To achieve this, we need to ensure that our recommendations are aligned with current practices and the main concerns of society.
The vision is to be a leading research unit in the area of sustainable socio-economic practices and policies. The platform will develop its own research focusing on markets and how they interact, as well as build upon other research developed by industry and public sector research institutes. Furthermore, a close collaboration with practitioners will be developed to support and induce them to create sustainable and competitive business practices.
