This ambitious project was created as part of the strategic partnership between the European Academy of Business in Society (EABIS) and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).
The European Academy of Business in Society (EABIS) is a unique alliance of companies, business schools and academic institutions, with the support of the European Commission, committed to integrating business in society issues into the heart of business theory and practice in Europe. EABIS was established in 2002 after CEOs and Deans across Europe agreed on the urgent need for more and better knowledge and skills on business in society issues. As of 2008, it has over 70 institutional members, including leading European business schools. Web site:
