The Research Engagement and Impact Awards 2017
Neil Crosby, Professor of Real Estate, has been recognised in the University's Research Engagement and Impact Awards 2017. The awards recognise and reward staff at the University of Reading who have achieved extraordinary things by engaging and interacting with people outside academia to drive better understanding of research and to influence change.
Neil's award was made under the "Impact" category and recognises his work with the Bank of England and the UK property industry in developing property valuation techniques that aid the financial stability agenda. The work has an important objective: to stop a major downturn in property markets causing a potential collapse of the banking system, because of over-lending in boom markets secured on real estate. By working closely with the BoE and the commercial property industry, Professor Crosby is developing new methods and models to enable lending policies to react against the cycle of boom and bust.
