SIIR is a centre at the University of Borås that aims to deliver research resources and research environment to the retailing field, retail industry and society as a whole, in order to contribute to innovative and sustainable retailing.
The programme involves research disciplines in a multitude of research fields at the University of Borås such as business, IT, demand chain management, risk management, sustainability and event management.
