BCCM launches the Mutual Value Lab research partnership with Monash University

Earlier this month, the Mutual Value Lab – a research partnership between Australian ICMIF member the BCCM and Monash University to measure the value that cooperatives and mutuals create for their members and communities – was officially launched in Melbourne (Australia).

The lab is the latest addition to the Monash Business School’s pioneering Impact Labs, comprising dynamic interdisciplinary research labs that collaborate for impactful research with external partners. The Mutual Value Lab is the first research unit of its kind in the world. It leverages the ongoing research collaboration between Monash Business School, the BCCM and the cooperative and mutual sector in Australia, which led to the rollout of the groundbreaking performance and impact measurement tool, the Mutual Value Measurement Framework©.
