Our studies examine the impact of economic factors, management and policy on innovation and science, while we work closely with stakeholders in policy, industry and the third sector.
We believe strongly in the mutual fertilisation of problem-driven research defined by stakeholders, and theory-driven research defined by our own academic curiosity. Engagement and dissemination are also fundamental to our activities.
Our research covers a broad range of topics, grouped into four dedicated themes.
We are home to a number of cross-disciplinary research agendas and themes.
We conduct a wide range of research activities, including funded projects.
