ECOBAS (Economics and Business Administration for Society) is the first and only Galician Strategic Group in the legal-social field, and is made up of research groups in the field of Economy and Business.
Although our headquarters are located in the School of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Vigo, this is an interuniversity research and innovation unit, composed of professionals from the three universities of the Galician Academic System (SUG), which is one of our greatest strengths.
ECOBAS mission is to promote collaboration between members, as well as connecting them with professionals from other entities in order to maximize the academic, economic and social impact of our R&D&i activities. The aim is, therefore, to consolidate a regional, national and international pole of excellence, which could be recognizable for the quality of our research actions, development and innovation, and also by the ability to take on new challenges in a multidisciplinary and collaborative way.
Due to the cross-cutting nature of the work areas we develop, we are represented in several research and education centers, and we participate in projects related to very diverse fields of knowledge, such as the environment, fishing, energy, equality, health, innovation, or entrepreneurship, among others.
In addition, ECOBAS has an impact on the training of new professionals and researchers, through the participation in the development, coordination and promotion of master's degree and doctorate interuniversity programs, and specialized training courses.
Our priority lines of work are grouped into four main areas:
In all of them, we participate in numerous research and transfer projects, at regional, national and international level, obtaining funding both through competitive calls and by signing contracts and agreements with several organizations, both public and private.
