Strategy and Entrepreneurship
Innovation and Firm Growth
This research area focuses on the level of the project and related outcomes. It examines the value-adding nature of collaboration among individuals, units, and subunits within the same firm as well as collaboration efforts among individuals and units between partnering firms.
The pressure for companies to adapt to altered conditions in terms of resource constraints, emission pricing and social demands are a defining feature of many sectors within the economy offering businesses unique opportunities for competitive advantage where they are advantageously managed.
The sustainability area focuses on three core areas of sustainability: social entrepreneurship, environmental management (climate change and natural resources) and strategic sustainability (success through corporate sustainability). Researchers within the social entrepreneurship areas seek to break new ground in terms of how communities can be built for sustainable wellbeing as well as how to manage sustainable and scalable social enterprises. Researchers on the environmental aspects concentrate on the use and valuation of natural resources as well as adaptation and organisational resilience to the effects of climate change. Strategic sustainability researchers focus on achieving financial success through corporate sustainability.
