Global Minds @ Work
Established in September 2020, the research centre Global Minds @ Work conducts research on the development of young professionals’ Global Competences: ‘the capacity to examine local, global and intercultural issues, to understand and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others, to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions with people from different cultures, and to act for collective well-being and sustainable development’ (OECD, 2018, p.12).
The research centre is a continuation of the Global Mind Programme at research centre International Relationship Management led by Lector Mark Pluymaekers, with whom we continue to collaborate and with whom we share resources.
