It is a please to announce that the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy, has joined the GOLDEN network. With its strong focus on the organic relationships between food and cultures UNISG fits very well into the GOLDEN sustainability landscape. This connection with a leading institution in hospitality studies opens new possibilities in sustainability research in the gastronomy and hospitality sector.
The International Forum on Sustainable Value Chains (ISVC) and GOLDEN agreed to engage in a closer cooperation in research on global value chains. Since many MNEs and governments put an increasing focus on sustainability aspects in supply chains, ISVC and GOLDEN decided to join hands in grant applications and project development to leverage the complimentary strengths of both networks. This research aims at introducing and accelerating changes in international procurement practices.
