What is ECOBAS
ECOBAS (Economics and Business Administration for Society) is an Interuniversity Research Center comprised of researchers from all three Galician universities that specializes in the study of sustainability from an economic, environmental and social perspectives.
The Center gives continuity to the Strategic Grouping of the same name born in 2015 as the first and only interuniversity supra-group research unit in social sciences until the year 2020.
In this new stage, ECOBAS aims to achieve three ambitious goals:
- To become the backbone of R + D + i in the Galician innovation system, particularly in the field of social sciences, through a scientific agenda focusing on all the dimensions of sustainability (economic, environmental and social). In addition to being strongly connected to the priorities and needs of the environment, this agenda will also be aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the main regional, national and European agendas in the forthcoming period.
- To become a driving force of change in economic development, quality of life and well-being by generating knowledge to help solve social problems thanks to its rich experience, work trajectory and the collaboration of a broad variety of actors and social agents.
- To create an attractive, collaborative and international research environment that consolidates and attracts talent, while also playing a very important role in the training and qualification of new research staff in the field of Economics and Business.
