About our research clusters

Our research clusters reflect key themes within Adam Smith Business School and provide a platform for developing multidisciplinary research links, as well as for connecting research with practice.

Within each group, our staff undertake innovative theoretical scholarship, significant empirical research and knowledge exchange activities. This includes national and international interdisciplinary collaborations, not only with academic researchers, but also policymakers, managers and practitioners.

A distinctive feature of the research across the groups is the crossover between conceptual and practical dimensions of research. This reflects a concern with the relevance and impact of research on business and policy communities.
