GRI works with programme research. The idea behind GRI is to connect doctoral students and researchers to a research programme. By consolidating all our research into different programmes, all of our staff can work together on studies and exchange experiences with one another. That generates high-quality research.
At GRI we focus on a few carefully chosen areas of research. We want our research to make an impact on society and the business community, and we want it to be presented in a way that is easy to understand for people who are not researchers. Our research is used, for example, in undergraduate programmes in business administration and our staff often contributes to new textbooks. GRI’s researchers are also widely published in international scientific journals.
Today there are eight research programmes at GRI.
Leadership, Innovation and Collaboration (LIM)
Managing Big Cities (MBC)
Managing Overflow (MOF)
Organizing in Action Nets (OAN)
Centre for Consumer Science (CFK)
Risk and Society
Social Welfare Reform
Business & Design Lab
GRI is a fundamentally interdisciplinary research institute that brings together researchers from the fields of business administration, ethnology, sociology, law, psychology, education, Swedish language, technology, and environmental science. GRI also maintains a close collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology and the School of Public Administration at the University of Gothenburg. All of the research programmes at GRI also benefit from a comprehensive international network and exchange that includes visiting research fellows from around the world.
