Research projects

Behind great research is collaboration and strong relationships built with businesses and other institutions, and that’s what you’ll find at the core of all our research projects.

Research awards and grants

We’ve been awarded multiple EU grants for projects looking at business models to support assisted living for older people through technological innovation. To help the government understand how training investments increase productivity, we’ve also been funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) have awarded us national funding to better understand how small firms deal with regulation.

We’ve also won prestigious international awards such as the Newton Fellowship, funded by the Royal Society and British Academy for research looking at entrepreneurship in East Asia.

Ongoing impact

These awards and grants highlight our ongoing commitment to ensuring that our research projects are addressing relevant contemporary issues. All of our projects, both past and current, contribute to significant research that has real social impact. It’s valuable to practitioners and policy makers, as well as to our academic colleagues and students. Take a look at our projects below:
