Societal engagement in research
Researchers at Hanken work with other higher education institutions, companies and other societal actors to promote sustainable development and reaching the sustainable development goals.
One of our strategic goals within research is to strengthen corporate world connections. In order to reach this goal, researchers are encouraged to actively seek research topics and designs that address new challenges of the corporate world. Also, we aim to further develop executive education as an essential channel for disseminating current research to the corporate world and encourage faculty to engage in public policy and corporate decision making.
Researchers at Hanken are active in many international and national research projects on sustainability with societal impact. See some of the projects from our competence centers in sustainability below.
Our SDG impact through researchThe SDG Dashboard is a platform designed to assist HEI in reporting and sharing best practice impacts on the SDGs and accelerate the transformation of higher education into a force for good. Amongst other things, the platform shows which SDGs we impact through the research done at Hanken.
