Work in progress

Recently, Dr Bouziri joined a cooperation project between the Tunisian Ministry of Industry and small and Medium Enterprises (MIPME)[1], the German Metrology Institute (PTB)[2] and the Technical University in Berlin. The objective of the project is to test with randomized controlled trials (RCT) how to stimulate SMEs’ use of quality infrastructure services in order to foster export activity in Tunisia.

She is a member of another cooperation project[3] entitled “Corporate social responsibility practices’ development for a better society: multicountry analysis”. The aim of the project is to promote corporate social responsibility practices and evaluate their adoption’s impact on the stakeholders in the different countries involved (France, Romania, Montenegro and Lebanon).
