Research


My research stems from our team field experience in designing, organising and evaluating partnerships that address wicked sustainability problems in the agri-food sector, both in Europe, United States, Australia and in emerging economies. 

This research took place in several projects implemented together with Wageningen University & Research colleagues and a global team of scholars as part of the Global Center for Food Systems Innovation between 2012 and 2017.

This research contributes to advance our stakeholders' programs and practices in five interrelated areas of impact of the Global Center for Food Systems Innovation:

  1. entrepreneurship & innovation;
  2. organizational learning & change;
  3. value chains and networks;
  4. governance of new organisational forms;
  5. strategic management & corporate social responsibility.
