RAKE 2013 Awards

ISBE Research and Knowledge Exchange (RAKE) Fund 2013 Awards

The impact of ‘place’ on entrepreneurship

We have now completed the RAKE awards for 2013 sponsored by Barclays and Economic and Social Research Council. This year the fund received an unprecendented amount of applications making the review process very difficult and we would like to thank all who contributed to the review process. The year we have been able to make two awards.

Dr Caroline Parkinson and Prof Carole Howorth of Bradford University School of Management and Dr Alan Southern of University of Liverpool with Any place for business? The future of entrepreneurial cultures in deprived areas

Dr Angela Tregear and Prof Sarah Cooper of University of Edinburgh Business School, Mr Bob Yuill of SAOS Ltd and Dr Andrew Moxey of Pareto Consulting with Harnessing the Value of Place through Knowledge Flows: an Investigation of Small Firm Cooperation in Remote Rural Areas

We offer our congratulations to the teams involved and wish them every success with these initiatives.
