Academic Collaborative Center for Governance and Management for Broad Prosperity
Businesses, executives, and policymakers increasingly want to give greater weight to factors such as health, well-being, and climate in their decision-making. The call to steer in terms of broad prosperity is growing increasingly louder, but how do you move from ambition to action and from concept to practice? In the Academic Collaborative Center for Governance and Management for Broad Prosperity, university and practice join forces to contribute to the complex governance question that concerns public and private organizations.
Guiding compass in implementing broad prosperity
Broad prosperity is about a good balance of economy, ecology, and society, here and now, but also in the future and elsewhere. The application of this broad prosperity perspective still raises many questions in national, regional, and local policy and governance practice. The Academic Collaborative Center for Governance and Management for Broad Prosperity focuses on the management issues involved in promoting broad prosperity. The goal of the Academic Collaborative Center is to provide perspectives for action and a guiding compass to those who help implement the major societal transitions.
In the Academic Collaborative Center For Governance and Management for Broad Prosperity, Tilburg University scientists from various disciplines work together with partners to develop, disseminate, and implement scientific knowledge in co-creation aimed at the question of how public and private organizations can better steer towards broad prosperity.
Four connected themes are central to the agenda of the academic collaborative center.
