Working Tables and Research Teams

Research activities are carried out according to a two-fold approach – of both Policy and Management – to which two Working Tables (WT), integrated and operating in strict synergy, are dedicated:

  • The Policy Working Table aims at analysing institutional approaches and Green Economy policies, and at defining instruments to support planning, evaluation and decision making.
  • The Management Working Table aims at analysing and giving inputs to business strategies, by addressing both managerial and product-related aspects of Green Economy. Research activities of the Management WT are carried out in close collaboration with IdM , the Institute of Management of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa.

The Working Tables develop research approaches, methodologies and tools focusing on the most relevant, critical and latest issues and topics on Green and Circular Economy. The activities are coordinated and supervised by the Coordinators of the WT and carried out by the respective research teams.
