RESEARCH

Global chains and multistakeholder governance.

Coordinator: Professor Luciana Vieira

The multistakeholder initiative is a still incipient topic in the study of interorganizational relationships and, when comparing two initiatives that occur in different contexts, it is intended to advance the understanding of this alternative type of governance and its implications for those involved in global chains of Brazilian companies.  This study seeks to identify how the legitimacy of these initiatives is perceived by markets and stakeholders and what results have been achieved.

Coevolution of Supply Chain Competencies

Coordinator: Professor Ely Laureano Paiva

The purpose of this study is to compare from different institutional settings how competitive firms globally have developed actions to strengthen their key competencies.  In this way, we will have four distinct institutional environments: Brazilian, characterized by cyclical instabilities in economic growth;  European, institutional environments with stability and slow growth;  Chinese and New Zealanders, institutional environments with stability and continued growth.

Smart Cities: Governance and Urban Infrastructures

Coordinator: Maria Alexandra Viegas Cortez da Cunha

It is urgent to train researchers, teachers and public managers for the challenges of the Smart Cities.  In the 21st century cities and/or urban regions will be the organizational form of most societies in the world.  While the Americas and Europe are currently the most urbanized areas of the world, Africa and Asia are expected to urbanize at a faster rate than other regions.  Thus, the Challenges for Sustainable Development will focus on cities, especially in developing countries or emerging economies.  Cities around the world, international organizations, NGOs and companies are responding to these sustainability challenges.  Habitat III - New Urban Agenda, OECD studies for urban infrastructure policies (example OECD 2015) the report of the German Advisory Council on Global Change on ways to unlock the transformative power of cities (WBGU 2016) are just a few among the multiplicity of  urban sustainability initiatives being implemented by the world at all levels and scales.  Several topics are important.  This project focuses on three of them: urban infrastructure, smart governance, and critical event management for resilient cities.  Other themes are touched by their importance in the national context: urban mobility, health, and safety.

Innovation in the Public Sector

Coordinator: Professor José Antonio Puppim de Oliveira

Knowledge about the way innovations in public policy is built is fundamental to creating effective governance systems for tackling development challenges and implement public policies more effectively. The research will advance knowledge about innovation in the public sector at the different levels to develop new concepts and approaches to understand how to build more effective public organizations.
