Enterprise, entrepreneurship and local economic growth

Our research applies economic, political, sociological and geographical approaches to issues of small and medium sized enterprise (SME) and local economic development. A strong applied policy studies approach analyses barriers to SME growth and the challenges presented by promoting local economic growth, particularly in areas experiencing deprivation and those with high levels of population diversity. Collaborative working has been central to the development of research into social enterprises, explanations of social value and the innovatory impact of social enterprises and alternative organisational forms.
