VIDEO SUR Lab
If there is one sector that has not gone into crisis with COVID-19, it is sustainable urban regeneration. Large real estate operators have not announced any reduction in investments that promise to combine economic development and ecological transition.
Bocconi University has launched the Sustainable Urban Regeneration (SUR) Lab, which aims to study, analyze and promote the development of sustainable urban regeneration, with the contribution of four partners active in the sector: Hines, Intesa Sanpaolo, MilanoSesto e Prelios.
VIDEO Social Engagement
High-profile social media users, such as actors, popstars or athletes, compete on social media for user attention, that can translate into ticket sales for concerts or movies, a better contract, or lucrative product endorsements. This kind of competition, research by Gaia Rubera (Bocconi Department of Marketing) and Federico Rossi (Purdue University) published in Marketing Science found, follows its own rules and the ultimate winners could be the social media platforms the battle for attention is raging on.
VIDEO Water Consumption
Modelling irrigation water withdrawals as a function of irrigated areas alone yields almost the same results as much more complex and demanding methods, but in a much more parsimonious way. This parsimony allows for a more thorough uncertainty quantification and a more transparent estimate of one of the most important indicators of global water security.
In a paper recently published by Nature Communications, Bocconi Professor Emanuele Borgonovo and his coauthors Arnald Puy (Princeton and University of Bergen), Samuele Lo Piano (University of Reading), Simon A. Levin (Princeton), and Andrea Saltelli (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) explain how to reach this goal.
VIDEO Knowledge Transfer
Moving experienced people across organizational units may seem costly, but it is an effective way to promote organizational learning, diffuse best practices and save billions of dollars, according to research by Gianmario Verona
VIDEO Decision Making
Alfonso Gambardella won an ERC Grant to conduct a randomized controlled trial on an unprecedented scale in management. He will test whether a scientific approach to decision making can improve the way managers and entrepreneurs make choices.
If corporations, as of late, are more respectful of the environment and of their customers - if they are more socially responsible, part of the credit goes to accounting and accountants, explains Professor Annalisa Prencipe, KPMG Chair in Accounting.
VIDEO Customer Science
“Customer science is the fusion of three ingredients: marketing, which is the understanding of customer, data, hopefully Big Data, and machine learning”, explains Gaia Rubera, Amplifon Chair in Customer Science at Bocconi. “The goal here is first of all to identify, measure, and systematically understand key customer phenomena, for instance, in-store customer experience.”
VIDEO AXA Research Lab
The goal of the AXA Research Lab on Gender Equality, established by Bocconi and AXA, along with the AXA Reserach Fund, is to investigate the role of public policy in promoting gender equality, as well as women's empowerment and leadership. In this video Paola Profeta, Director of the Lab, highlights the gap to be filled to reach gender equality and says that the final objective of the lab is to provide policy recommendations in order to reach goal number five of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

VIDEO COVID Communication
Risk communication from the WHO was well trusted and acted upon during the first wave, but more emphasis on non-enforceable hygiene measures and messages tailored to the less compliant are needed now, according to Aleksandra Torbica and Nirosha Varghese.
