The need to optimize the use of public funding, especially those destined for research, in recent years appears increasingly oriented to the introduction of transparent disclosure and compliance mechanisms, capable of reducing information asymmetries and opportunistic attitudes arising from the evident fragmentation in progress in the complex system of management and reporting of public funding assigned to research. In this perspective, the aim of the journal is to collect contributions and studies on corporate governance and compliance mechanisms in the management and reporting systems of public funding for research and development.
In particular, the journal intends to represent an "ideal place" for multi-meta-disciplinary discussion between the world of academic research and the business world, with reference to issues such as: best practices in corporate governance systems; disclosure mechanisms and compliance systems in research and development projects aimed at facilitating collaboration and compliance with the rules between companies and institutions; engagement processes in public / private relationships; systems and ethical codes of conduct in the management of public funding for R&D aimed at defining good management practices; public finance to support research, innovation and competitiveness.
The journal aims to disseminate these issues to the academic community, the world of applied research and corporate governance consultancy, economic operators, professional and representative associations, institutions. The journal is organized with a scientific and an editorial committee, consists of national and international experts and academics.
