Further commitment

  • Executive Director of the CMI Berlin Research Institute, SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences
    CMI Berlin pursues a value-oriented view of contracts and their usage to foster economy, society, environment and the individual. Its activities are based on the concepts of networking and sustainability. Networks as inter-personal or inter-organizational arrangements imply the understanding of the contract as a tool to blend and to balance the interests of different stakeholders. The intrinsic values of CMI Berlin’s activities are directed by a vision of sustainability which stresses the need for fair and socially responsible relationships.
