Embedding Research

Putting knowledge to work in theory and in practice.

Social and Environmental Enterprise

Our research opens up debate around the key issues, tensions and critical challenges that face enterprises with social and environmental objectives.  We work closely with social enterprises, for example  through ESRC knowledge exchange awards with Co-operatives UK, the Community Catalysts CIC and the environmental regeneration charity Groundwork UK. We bring a social and business perspective to technical research and development, currently as part of an EPSRC funded project on renewable energy.
