After three years of hard work and successful cooperation among the 14 partners from 9 member states and associated countries, the Route to Pi or R2π research project has come to produce fruitful outputs. The wide range of expertise, knowledge, tools and connections existing among the consortium members were leveraged to develop innovative, practical tools and procedural guidelines that may be widely and systematically applied across many different business sectors in diverse regions and countries across the spectrum from large established EU countries to newer and smaller member states. More details ranging from business model guidelines to policy implications, can be found at the project website.
Together with other consortium partners, ESCP developed innovative teaching material to transfer R2π´s knowledge into business education. R2π shall move Europe onto a more sustainable, resource-efficient and resilient economic track.
