29.04.2016 : European Training Foundation

The European Training Foundation (ETF) is a decentralized agency of the European Union (EU) based in Turin/Italy. Prof.Dr.Theodor Purcarea of the Romanian American University (RAU), longstanding friend of the European Retail Academy (ERA), interviewed Dr. Madlen Serban (photo), Director of ETF. More: LINK

Vocational training is according to Prof.Dr.B.Hallier of utmost importance to bridge theoretical learning and application of know-how in practical life. ERA therefore developed in 2010 a special platform (EUCVOT) for this target group after a joint research project with the Social Dialogue group of EuroCommerce and Uni Europa.

15.04.2016 : SPAR Wholesale

SPAR was founded in 1932 in the Netherlands as a voluntary chain. The letters (SPAR) were taken as an abbreviation from the Dutch sentence "working together for the joint benefit". The Dutch word SPAR is the equivalent for X-mas tree : becoming the logo of the group ! After World War II SPAR started to spread through the neighbouring countries in Western Europe - like in Germany where in 1958 a total of 55 regional SPAR wholesalers were counted - distributing to more than 10.000 stores : starting later to label them also as SPAR-outlets.

In 1959 SPAR International was founded as a roof for coordination. Today SPAR can be found even in Russia, China or Africa ! And quite interestingly investments can be found meanwhile also back to Europe : like SPAR South Africa taking over 60 percent of SPAR Switzerland.

02.04.2016 : CIRCLE Naples

CIRCLE was founded in 2004 to create a platform for PhD-students to speak in English language in front of an international audience - being hosted each year by another CIRCLE-member. In 2016 the Italian partners University Partheonape and the Second University of Naples jointly hosted the 13th CIRCLE Conference. Among the participants of the opening ceremony had been Dr.L. de Magistris/Mayor of Naples, Prof.E.Bonetti and Prof.M.Simoni/the two coordinators of the organzing committee, Prof.A.Mattiaci/President of the Italian Marketing Society, Prof.C.Vignali/Provost of Circle Virtual College , Prof.T.Rashid/President of Circle International , Dr.G.Morici/President BarillaEurope and Prof.F.Babiloni/University of Rome.

20.03.2016 : Focus Africa

The University of Nairobi joined the network of the European Retail Academy. ERA has the development of Africa as a special focus for 2016/2017. As one of its initiatives it will promote the Total Supply Conference to fight Food Waste, which will be organized by the World Food Preservation Center in March 2017 (Call for Papers). It has to be reminded that at the United Nations HQ in Nairobi also Prof.Dr.Klaus Toepfer (see: ERA-Hall of Fame) had worked for several years; he initiated among others for environmental issues the Kyoto-Protocol. Prof.Dr.B.Hallier supports his initiatives since the late 80ies of the last century.

Also cultural aspects (art/homopathy) of Africa will be focused by ERA: especially by www.european-retail-academy.org/FAB. Each quarter an artist from Africa will be portraited.
