Our interdisciplinary research programme ‘The Responsible Organisation’ addresses the multiple values underlying organisational responsibility, the conditions required to realise those values, and the interventions geared to the transition of organisations toward responsible organisations. We co-create knowledge with multiple stakeholders in the wider community to ensure the impact of our scholarly work. Our research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research
