Frisian Flagships

All GSCF research is organized into three thematic topics, known as the “Frisian Flagships”. Taken together, the Frisian Flagships encompasses many of Spearheads, Promising Niches and the Living Lab/Crossovers of the Frisian Knowledge Agenda. They also encompass some “Core Topics”, i.e. research areas expected to have a significant local impact but which are not explicitly mentioned in the Frisian Knowledge Agenda.

Flagship 1: Governance & Sustainable Economy

Flagship 1 contributes business, economics and policy research to Fryslân. Activities include in-depth analyses of all elements of the sustainable business model (from leadership to strategy, organisation, alliances, context, policy and performance), regional, national and international assessments of governance and sustainability dimensions applying an interdisciplinary and multimethod approach.

PhD research in this Flagship may be connected to work at the Centre for Sustainable Entrepreneurship (CSE), which provides a range of PhD research projects dedicated to disentangle the causes and consequences of sustainable entrepreneurship. Through the involvement of its Director, the CSE helps fund research under this flagship and builds durable relations with stakeholders in the fields.
