The SIM Project seeks to empower organisations to improve their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices and establish stronger ties with local communities. We’ve been working on the project for 6 months and this blog post will give you an update on the progress so far.
The SIM project consortium met in Athens to officially launch the project during the summer. In a display of collaboration, all 14 partners, some of whom joined virtually, came together to kick-start this innovative venture under the lead coordination of the University of the Peloponnese.
Samantha Carty is the project manager for Momentum and she is enjoying working alongside the other partners. The team have worked hard over the last 6 months and are starting work on their first reporting. Research is well underway, with company surveys and interviews taking place in five key countries: Austria, Greece, Croatia, Italy, and France. This research plays a key role in our mission by allowing us to learn more about companies, their CSR efforts and their interaction with the local communities in which they operate. It is an essential step in creating a positive impact and strengthening relationships between companies and communities.
We will keep you updated as the project progresses and we invite you to follow the website and social media channels for the latest news:
