15 December 2020 is a significant date in the history of CORVINUS international research: we managed to win the University’s first Horizon 2020 project in which we participate as consortium leader.
A 14-member international consortium from 11 countries led by Corvinus is exploring the relations between international trade and sustainability in an innovative approach in the 48-month TRADE4SD project with a total budget of EUR 4 million. The application received an outstandingly high score during the evaluation, 14.5 out of a possible 15 points.
A fundamental novelty of the project is that it explores the relations between trade and sustainability in an integrated approach, using innovative quantitative and qualitative research techniques, formulating policy recommendations with the active involvement of society in a broader context. In addition to leading the consortium, the Corvinus team is responsible for the theoretical grounding, exploring and quantifying the relations between trade and sustainable development goals, and trade-based modelling of social issues.
The professional coordinator of the project is the leader of Department of Argobusiness, Dr. Attila Jámbor. The upcoming project is of historical significance to the University not only for gaining and utilising the experience of consortium leaders, but also for better involvement in international scientific life.
Congratulations to the project team and good luck with the implementation!
