Knowledge Hub

Knowledge Hub


The Knowledge Hub is a key focus for innovation in the Faculty of Business and Law.

Through our wide range of Knowledge Clusters we bring together academic staff, students and ‘real world’ partners to make sense of the key challenges facing contemporary business and society.

Our Knowledge Clusters reflect the passion and expertise of our academic staff. Of equal importance, though, are the research needs of our business community. By bringing together a treasure trove of resource in a creative environment we seek to spark innovation in teaching, research and knowledge exchange that can really make a difference.

Our clusters are action-orientated and entrepreneurial as well as scholarly. They are passionate about working with a wide range of stakeholders to build a useful evidence base and facilitating practitioners to use that evidence to build a sustainable future.

Knowledge Hub Director, Dr Julia Rouse.
