Oikos UNDP Young Scholars Development Academy

The second annual oikos UNDP Young Scholars Development Academy provides PhD students and young scholars working on poverty and sustainable development from a management or economics perspective a platform to present and discuss their ongoing research projects with fellow students and senior faculty.
Research on inclusive business models, market development and sustainability at the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) is a promising and challenging field for young researchers and PhD students. It calls for a multitude of methods, combination of disciplines in management and economics and new research designs, e.g. experimental development economics.
The 2010 academy focus, “Inclusive Partnerships for Sustainable Market Innovations”, aims to attract papers fostering new ideas and solutions how businesses, governments and other stakeholders can actively account for environmental and social resources and limits when building markets that include the poor and create opportunities for human development. The event aims to advance academic research on the Base of the Pyramid (BoP), development and governance issues, build networks across disciplinary boundaries and to prepare the ground for research that is relevant for both academic and business audiences.
