Responsible Competitiveness and CSR Clusters

By Murat Akpinar

As we read in the work of Michael Porter and Mark Kramer (2011), inclusion of corporate social responsibility into the core of strategy has the potential to foster competitiveness through social innovations and shared value creation. JAMK Centre for Competitiveness arranged a webinar on this topic on Jan 30, 2013 jointly with the European Chapter of the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC). The guest speaker of the webinar was Prof. Dr. Pablo Collazzo, Visiting Professor at the WU-Vienna University of Economics. In the webinar Dr. Collazzo opened up the concepts and told about his latest research which studies the effects of responsible competitiveness and CSR clusters by Simon Zadek (2006) in achieving competitiveness. His presentation was followed by a Q&A session.
