An introduction to the Business School's Entrepreneurship and Innovation research group, including a list of academic staff members, group research, and research centres.

Research within the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group focuses on innovative, growth-orientated entrepreneurship and the study of innovation surrounding new information and communication technologies. The group collaborates extensively with various international scholars and centres of excellence and has an active visiting professor programme and PhD programme.

Entrepreneurship

This research stream specialises in innovative, growth-orientated entrepreneurship in a variety of contexts, such as entrepreneurial finance, sustainable entrepreneurship in developing countries, and entrepreneurial education.

Innovation

Scholars in this subgroup address topics such as the emergence of new generations of ICTs, new ICT-enabled business models, and the uneven and problematic access of certain groups or constituencies to the digital economy.

Research Centres and Networks

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group is directly responsible for the Centre for Entrepreneurship Research. In addition, many of the Group's members are involved in the Institute for the Study of Science, Technology and Innovation.
