The International IECO-UV Business Ethics Chair is created as an initiative of the Institute for Ethics in Communication and Organizations (IECO) of the COSO Foundation and it is affiliated with the University of Valencia.
Its main objective is to develop IECO training programs, promoting and disseminating national and international research and good practices in the areas that link together ethics, communication and management fields.
In order to do so, the IECO-UV Chair has the aim of establishing ways of collaboration and development between the UV and those companies and entities of all sectors which are oriented and committed to improve the ethical quality of the organization itself and of society as a whole.
Among the initiatives promoted are the following: research activities, training programs, cultural and university extension activities, both national and international, oriented to create and develop knowledge and to spread the permanent value of Business Ethics, beyond ephemeral trends.
Chair steering committee
The chair was born with the purpose of developing research, training and dissemination programs of IECO good practices, nationally and internationally, promoting ethics in the field of communication and organizations. To achieve this, collaboration channels were established with several companies, our sponsor companies, which were already committed to improving the ethical quality of the organization itself and of society as a whole.
