Research highlights: January 2019
Here at Henley Business School, many of our faculty are engaged in academic and applied research, working closely with governments, organisations and other institutions both nationally and internationally to help drive the global research agenda across a broad range of fields.
Here are some of the highlights of the research projects our staff are currently working on:
- Dr Min Zou, Lecturer in Human Resource Management (International Business and Strategy) is co-investigator in a new research project, ‘Mapping the Quality of Working Life in Britain: An Occupational Approach’. The research, funded under the ESRC’s Secondary Data Analysis Initiative, is led by Surrey Business School in partnership with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. It will be taken forward over the next 18 months.
- Professor Andrew Godley, Associate Dean (International) and Head of Leadership, Organisations and Behaviour, and Dr Maksim Belitski, Associate Professor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, received funding from the Research Endowment Trust Fund for a new project, ‘Extending the novel entrepreneurship ecosystem framework of analysis to Ukraine, Georgia and Kazakhstan’. The money will be used to support research staff in partner institutions to underpin the rapid extension of empirical testing of entrepreneurship ecosystems formation to regions in Tbilisi, Kiev and Alma-Ata. The project is one of six to receive funding from the RETF, which supports the strategic development of research ideas and initiatives in the University of Reading.
