Policies & Procedures
Any organisation, no matter its size, should have clear internal policies and procedures concerning the way it does its job. First and foremost, this means a better governance system and a managerial style focused on strategical decisions and long term impact. Second, this introduces a higher degree of predictibility and organisational stability. Third, it eliminates the opportunities for discretionary management and unethical and illegal behaviour.
Currently, our internal Policies & Procedures cover 3 main area: (i) organisational ethics, which deals with all administrative decisions and the general behaviour in our organisation; (ii) research conduct, including both the way we understand to get involved in research and publish our work; and (iii) environmental impact, referring to the way we influence directly and indirectly the environment through our activities.
