Objective

In recent years the EU has committed itself to some core strategies to shape the Europe's future, mainly the Lisbon strategy, the sustainability strategy and the integration of an enlarged Union.

These strategies can only be successful if their implementation involves adequately and effectively economic actors, non-profit partnerships and networks, stakeholders, local communities and civil society.

In this setting, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) holds the potential to stimulate corporate contribution s to the implementation and integration of the mentioned EU strategies. CSR may thus contribute to make the EU the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world. CORE devises the organisation of a coherent series of four conferences targeted to young researchers and aimed to investigate the potential contribution of CSR to implement and integrate EU strategies.

The first three Conferences focus on the sustainability strategy, the Lisbon strategy and EU enlargement, respectively. The fourth and last Conference tackles the question of whether CSR can promote the necessary integration of the three strategies.

The CORE Conferences represent a unique opportunity for young researchers to learn about the potential of CSR in an interdisciplinary and stimulating setting. A different range of multidisciplinary competencies and professional experiences is gathered with the intent to provide highly qualified training on a research topic of large European interest.

In terms of training capacity, the conferences are structured as to guarantee a lively and constructive exchange of knowledge from experienced researchers and professionals to young researchers, through a structure that favours continuous interactions and debate (i.e. panel sessions, knowledge-building sessions and roundtables).

Large attention is devoted to publicity and dissemination strategies, with the intent to keep the flow of information going, thus enhancing training opportunities.
