UNIPI is a member of the European initiative EURAXESS – Researchers in Motion, which provides access to a complete range of information and support services to researchers wishing to pursue their research career in Europe. In LOCOMOTION, UNIPI is represented by the Department of Economics and Management (DEM). DEM has a strong background in the development of qualitative and quantitative models that evaluate the impact of policies both on economic and social aspects. The team members will benefit from collaboration with REMARC (http://remarc.ec.unipi.it), a DEM research center conducting cutting-edge research on responsible management and sustainable development. REMARC research focuses on three main areas – i.e. International Business and Human Rights; Communicating and Practising Corporate Social Responsibility and Societal Transition for a Sustainable Economy – and on a set of smaller related projects. Through research, REMARC seeks to shape policy makers’ thinking on economic development strategies, and work towards transformations that reduce injustice and inequalities. REMARC is part of the Sustainability Centres Community, hosted by the Network for Business Sustainability.
