Rose is a member of the SME internationalisation and networking project (SINET project), which is a research group of scholars from UK, Qatar, India, Denmark, China and Poland. The group focuses on SME internationalisation, networking and decision-making from six different countries.
Rose's research has a solid practical impact, exemplified in several funded international research projects in Mexico, Turkey, and Egypt focusing on commercial and social entrepreneurship in emerging and developed economies. She worked with and offered consultations (in the form of different research interventions) to a variety of commercial and social entrepreneurs, policymakers, funders, and key stakeholders in emerging and developed economies. For example, she worked with supporting agencies in Scotland and key actors within the third-sector healthcare ecosystem to help identify gaps, offered guidelines, and customised toolkits on how to help support small social organisations operating in the healthcare sector. Similarly, she was involved with key actors in the Egyptian healthcare sector (e.g., social foundations, charities, and social organisations) to co-create a blueprint of an ecosystem that helps support social organisations offering primary healthcare services across the country. Her research attracts opportunities for Knowledge Exchange exhibited in several invitations to participate as a keynote speaker in public events. Rose is a mentor for Women in Academia as part of the Women in Academy of International Business (WAIB) in the UK and Ireland Chapter.
