Corporate governance, a cross-disciplinary research field
Researchers in this field are analysing the way that public and private organisations are governed and how they function with regard to their objectives, values, leadership, financing and a number of other factors.
Integrating research progress into public policy development
The ECGI is an international non-profit scientific institute in the field of corporate governance. Its founding members include three Nobel Prize winners. For seventeen years, the institute has been working to lead and commission high-quality research in the field of corporate governance. The final objective is to bring the results of this research to the attention of political decision-makers so that they may take into account the progress made in research when developing public policy.
Prof. Boris Nikolov's appointment to the ECGI is the next step in an already successful career

Indeed, he received the Prize for Best Bachelor in Economics (University of Geneva), the Prize for Best Master’s thesis (HEC Lausanne, UNIL) and the Excellence prize for his doctoral thesis (Swiss Finance Institute).
