Research Collaborations and Invited Presentations

Researchers in the School have been involved in national and international research collaborations, including as visitors to the Technical University of Berlin (with Nobel Prize winner, Edenhofer), Cranfield School of Management, Warwick Business School, Loughborough University, Rollins College, Roskilde University, Augsburg University, and Victoria University of Wellington. All of these collaborations can be considered successful in terms of the research output that has been generated. Furthermore, Bika is honorary research fellow at the University of Edinburgh and member of STEP (Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices) Network at Babson College, where she has continued to develop collaborative research.

Many invited national and international presentations have also been made by members of the unit, including those at Indiana University, the Norwegian School of Economics and Business, the University of Melbourne, RMIT, Victoria University of Wellington, Roskilde University, University of Augsburg, The University of Applied Sciences, Vlissingen, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, University of Copenhagen, International Hellenic University, EUI Florence, Zhejiang Gongshang University, the University of Reading, Nottingham Business School and Essex Business School.

The School also has considerable ongoing collaborative effort with users. For example, CCP has ongoing research collaboration with regulators, including Ofgem, Ofwat and the OFT, and Waddams is now an academic director of The Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE), a new organisation of regulators and companies, based in Brussels (and paid half a day a week).

Journal Editing and Conference Organisation

Members of the school are on the editorial boards for dozens of journals, including the British Journal of Management, Journal of Management, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology and Industrial Marketing Management. In addition, Daniels is Associate Editor of Human Relations, Shaffer is Guest Area-Editor of Management Science (2008-2010), Associate Editor of Quantitative Marketing and Economics and Journal of Economics and Business, and Co-Editor of the Journal of Economics & Management Strategy, Barnes is Associate Editor of Information & Management, and Chan is Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics. Other editorial involvement includes more than 20 additional journals.
