Development of a collaboration to examine the implications of new conditions and Technologies for corporate social responsibility issues in maritime supply chains (CSR in Maritime Supply Chains)
Based on this growing concern about sustainability, the environment, and CSR, this grant is being requested to: 1) plan a meeting/workshop of selected individuals, some of whom will be taking part in a conference in Copenhagen (November 12); 2) brainstorm issues related to CSR and sustainable shipping practices; 3) develop a collaboration that will result in research funding from a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant (PDG) (2014) and subsequently further funding such as a Partnership Grant (PG) (2016); and 3) develop other methods of knowledge exchange e.g. student internships, with university and corporate partners.
