Project: Projects from Previous Employment

Project Details


The RESPONSE project is funded by the European Commission's DG Enterprise & Industry in their call to 'mainstream CSR in European SMEs.' Co-ordinated by the University of Girona in collaboration with IESE, University of Strathclyde, Politecnico Innovazione, and Cluster Conocimiento, this 15-month project aims to mainstream CSR through developing the link with innovation. A Social Innovation model (CSR:I3) has been created, based on interviews with 60 SMEs across Europe which will allow CSR to be implemented within an organisation's overall quest for value.
