The Academic Network Online
The PRI Academic Network Online is a platform that connects academics and investment practitioners for dialogue and relationship-building. It is a community of interest on responsible investment.
It is part of the PRI’s Academic Research Programme that develops and supports responsible investment research. The programme’s core purpose is to support practical evidence and insights from research to: inform, raise awareness and challenge established thinking and practice in RI among investment practitioners, and to develop an active community of interest that is innovative, rigorous and cross-disciplinary. Change can be encouraged and influenced – in processes, behavioural, cultural, or systemic issues with evidence, insights and recommendations generated by research.
PRI works to achieve these aims by providing grant funding, by showcasing research findings and through the activities of The Academic Network, which is a vibrant and flourishing international community of close to 4,000 academics and investment practitioners on ESG and investment. Academics are from RI-related disciplines, traversing finance and business, economics, management, sociology, and STEM subjects.
The Academic Network Online is the platform to find or and engage with:
- The latest research
- Share ideas, publications, papers, articles
- A speaker or contributor
- An intern or specialist
- Accessing data or potential interviewees
The Academic Network has the opportunity to convene every year at the Academic Network Conference, which is held alongside PRI in Person, the largest gathering of responsible investment professionals in the world.
