Responsible Business Research Seminar 15-16.3.2023

Hybrid seminar, Tampere University, Faculty of Management and Business

What does corporate responsibility mean in today’s society? How do responsible and ethical aspects appear in different business models and business environments? How can we conduct research about these aspects and develop them further?

The Responsible Business Research Seminar is organised in order to increase the visibility and to promote research on business responsibility, sustainability and ethics in Finland. In 2023, the seminar is organised for the 11th time. Languages of the seminar are Finnish and English.

The Research Seminar encourages the networking of researchers and aims at advancing responsible business to become an important research field in Finland. The Research Seminar offers an opportunity for researchers in the field to present their research projects and results as well as to share ideas and experiences of doing research.

Join us as we welcome Irene Henriques, Professor of Sustainability and Economics at the Schulich School of Business, York University to speak on the power of shared value creation.
