and Academic
Leadership
Role
26/07/2016
From January 2013 to date: Head of Research, Staffordshire
University Business School. Main responsibilities to date:
membership of the University REF Advisory Group; leading,
managing and writing the REF2014 submission in Business and
Management Studies.
From 2008 to date: Founder and currently Director of the Centre
for Applied Business Research (CABR) within Staffordshire
University Business School.
CABR was established to raise the level of activity and profile of
Business School research and enterprise activities. To this end, over
the period 2009 to 2013 we secured £640,000 of additional research
and enterprise funding for the Business School (according to our
REF5 submission), appointed two Enterprise Readers, put in place
administrative infrastructure, and enlarged our capacity by both
providing more research opportunities and by mentoring more
colleagues into becoming active researchers. The ethos of CABR is to
realize synergies between an enterprise agenda of business
engagement and a research agenda preparing for assessment under
the REF2014 and beyond.
My continuing contributions to CABR include academic leadership and
management, personal research, research supervision and mentoring
(including joint publication), bid writing (with successes including a
HEIF project and an FP7 project – see below) and working on
external projects.

4) Contribution to postgraduate research training: Staffordshire
University Business School has one of the largest PhD
programmes in economics in the “new” university sector (perhaps
the largest). In addition to supervision, my particular contribution
has been to introduce our PhD students to new econometric
techniques and empirical strategies (such as natural experiments
and meta-regression analysis).
MEDIA
RELATIONS
I contribute frequently to local and regional media on economic and
business issues. In return, Staffordshire University and my Faculty
are mentioned prominently.
Some of my research has attracted media interest: frequently at
local and regional levels and also at national level. My research on
school performance was
 featured in the professional press - Public Finance
(07/09/2007) and
the Times Educational Supplement (07/09/2007 and
14/09/2007),
 reported widely in the regional press, including the Evening
Standard (mainly on 07/09/2007),
 reported in the Independent, the Times and the Guardian
(07/09/2007), and
 reported and combined with interviews in prominent articles
in the Daily Mail (07/09.2007) the Daily Telegraph
(07/09/2007) (front page) and the South China Morning Post
(08/09/2007).
In addition, the research was reported on BBC Breakfast TV, BBC
Radio 2 News and Sun FM Radio News (07/09/2007).
On the same day, I also gave interviews broadcast by BBC TV News
24, Independent Radio News (ITN’s regional network), BBC Radio 4
News Briefing, BBC Radio 5 Live News and, most prominently, BBC
Radio 4’s Today Programme.
The publicity resulted in a large number of requests for the research
paper; from, amongst others, academics, practitioners and both
Houses of Parliament.

CURRENT RESEARCH AGENDA
From the platform of current projects and postgraduate research funding, I am developing applied
research in three areas:
1. educational policy, in particular policy and programme evaluation;
2. institutional influences on economic performance at both micro and macro levels, in particular in the
context of transitional economies; and
3. SME innovation and diversification in traditional manufacturing industries, including the evaluation
of innovation support programmes.
My contributions include both primary econometric studies and meta-regression analysis.
The first and second of these areas continue, respectively, a 10-year research agenda and 15 years of
PhD supervision (see pp.3-4 above). The third reflects more recent interests developed by way of
leading the survey and econometric analysis in a European Union Framework 7: Good Practices in
Innovation Support Measures for SMEs: facilitating transition from the traditional to the knowledge
economy (GPrix, completed in February 2012). Publication strategy is proceeding by means of
mentoring within the Centre for Applied Business Research at Staffordshire University, of which I am
Director (see p.5 above) as well as through collaboration with former GPrix partners, Hugo Hollanders
and René Wintjes (Senior Researchers at the MERIT Institute, United Nations University – University of
Maastricht) and Dr Dragana Radicic, former Research Fellow on the GPrix project and currently
Research Associate in Entrepreneurship and Business Evolution at Cambridge University.
