CORE - Center for Consumer Well-being & Retail Innovation has the goal of contributing towards consumer well-being and retail sector prosperity, by developing and sharing knowledge with companies in a relationship of synergy and co-building. 

Our vision entails becoming a reference across Europe in the development of knowledge, teaching and dissemination of the promotion of consumer well-being and retail innovation. 

Because of this, we are committed to developing research and insights about behaviours and practices that will increasy consumers' quality of life, to bringing fresh perspectives to retail innovation, and to reinforce the synergetic connection between the two.
