About Centre for Corporate Responsibility (CCR)

Get to know us!

CCR is a joint Research and Development Institute between  Hanken School of Economics and University of Helsinki

CCR aims at enhancing the understanding of the  interactions betweenbusiness, politics, and society –  particularly in relation to the societal impacts and responsibilities of business. It builds on research on (1) the societal responsibilities of business firms in specific communities, in the national context, as well as globally, and (2) the interactions between business firms and various governmental and non-governmental actors. Associated research fields include Corporate Social Responsibility / Corporate Responsibility (CSR/CR), business and society, business ethics, political economy, and responsible management education. 

CCR fosters in all its activities cross-disciplinarity and multi-stakeholder cooperation. Additionally it aims at promoting and developing research with high societal impact, relevance and accessibility to its stakeholders.

How can I participate?

If you want to be on our email list, please send a message to ccr@hanken.fi and we will add you - any stakeholder can join the list. If you are a researcher at Hanken or the University of Helsinki and you'd like us to list you as an affiliated member please send us a short bio (for examples see here) and links to two open access articles/or similar that illustrate your work.

We are more than happy to give our members and stakeholders a platform or a soapbox - if you have any ideas for an event or a workshop topic do not hesitate to contact us and we will make it happen! We are organising the Responsible Organising stakeholder event every year in the fall - if you have an idea for a worksop or a panel get in touch! 

Our main activities are, however, research related that is how we can execute other things / events. We are happy to help you and support you in various research applications through coordination or collaboration - and we have a mission to particularly support early-stage postdocs in their funding endeavours. Again contact us at ccr@hanken.fi and set up a meeting with us to discuss.
