The Official Gazette of Castilla y León (BOCYL) published on December 30th, 2020, the resolution of economic support to the strategic plans and strategic research programs executed by the research structures of excellence of Castilla y León. It recognizes the Excellence Unit ‘Economic Management for Sustainability’ (GECOS) of the Multidisciplinary Business Institute (IME, by its acronym in Spanish), with reference number CLU-2019-03, to which € 400,000 is awarded until 2024. This way, GECOS becomes the flagship research unit of the IME.
The economic support is granted under the framework of the Regional Strategy for Research and Innovation for Smart Specialization (RIS3, by its acronym in Spanish) of Castilla y León 2014-2020 and is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union. Now, both GECOS and the IME will be able to better fulfill their mission, generate capacities in people and organizations, and maximize their contribution to the economic development of Salamanca and beyond.
Furthermore, the current complex context caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus makes GECOS’s work and contribution even more crucial: to generate knowledge to develop environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable business models. Therefore, the funds received recognize and increase the IME’s ability to provide support to companies and individuals by making its cutting-edge knowledge available.
Finally, the Unit of Excellence GECOS is open to the incorporation of researchers whose activities and objectives are aligned with ours. If you are interested in being part of GECOS, please kindly e-mail its Director, Julio Pindado, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
