Leonardo Centre

The Leonardo Centre provides an innovative cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional laboratory where experts from academia, business and institutions co-create and experiment with alternative models of enterprise for joint economic and human value creation.

The Centre’s mission is to innovate, experiment and scale transformational change in the purpose, governance, strategy, systems and culture of the business enterprise, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Leonardo Centre offers an innovative way to tackle the multiple complex issues related to the exploration and experimentation of more inclusive and sustainable forms of enterprise. The Leonardo Centre aims to contribute to the positive evolution of business as we currently know it.
