A strategic approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is increasingly important to enterprises, especially SMEs, in the machine tools sector (MTS). Moreover, the MTS is a very strategic business sector from a CSR perspective, having a potential multiplying impact on several sectors of its supply chain.

The project DESIGN-MTS – Defining Social responsibility Interventions for a Grounded Networking in Machine Tools Sector aims to encourage and enable the European machine tools industry and its supply chain to take a strategic and integrated approach to CSR in cooperation with relevant stakeholders.

To this end, it provides a multi-stakeholder platform on corporate social responsibility in the machine tools sector.

The project is endorsed and co-funded by the European Commission, and is led by the University of Macerata. Partner institutions are: CECIMO – The European Association of the Machine Tool industries, CSR-Europe, CEI – Central European Initiative, IRES, the University of Nottingham. The duration of the project is 18 months, from July 2013 to December 2014.
