Imbrogiano
Postdoctoral researcher
Department of Economics and Management
Field of science Business and Management, Sociology

Jean-Pierre joined the Department of Economics and Management in April 2020, after finalizing his PhD thesis at the Sustainable Minerals Institute of the University of Queensland, Australia. His research interests lie in the sustainability performance in businesses, the governance of business sustainability (i.e. the practices of sustainability standard setters and sustainable supply chain managers, amongst others), and in social-cultural foundations of (un-)sustainable development. Before pursuing his research interests, Jean-Pierre worked for Intertek in Germany and for the German development cooperation (GIZ) in Mongolia.

Karlheinz
Knickel
University Researcher
Department of Economics and Management
Field of science Economics

I am an independent researcher, analyst, consultant and coach with 25+ years experience working with decision-makers at national and international levels. My main institutional affiliation is with Helsinki University. 

Key focus areas in my work are:
a) innovation processes, projects, initiatives, networks and policies in sustainable development;
b) sustainable agricultural and rural development, agri-environment, agri-food systems, urban-rural relations;
c) transition towards resource-efficient low carbon eco-economies.

Supporting the synergies between environmental, economic and social goals in business strategies and policy development has always been fundamental in my work. Creating win-win solutions helps build alliances and facilitates change that would otherwise be hard to achieve.

I find effective research-policy-practice linkages very important. Scientific concepts and theory need to be translated into practical solutions.

I enjoy international and intercultural collaboration, constructive dialogue, connecting different agendas, crossing disciplinary and sectoral boundaries and cross-cutting analysis.

I am very happy to support any international research project development initiatives at the University. I have 30 years of experience with EU funded research projects. Proposal development including consortium building and proposal writing is my passion. I am also ready to coach younger colleagues who like to engage in EU projects.
