The Business School celebrates the Research and Innovation Blog’s first birthday
The Business School’s Research and Innovation blog has now been live for a year.
The blog is used to showcase the variety of research that is taking place within the Business School, making research activities and findings more accessible to a wider audience beyond academia.
As well as demonstrating the breadth and relevance of the Schools research, the blog also offers an insight into what really goes on within research institutions not just the research that takes place through large grants, but the journey from undertaking a PhD to becoming an established researcher.
Over the past year, there have been just short of 100 posts on the blog, covering a variety of research topics, from 3D printing, to ageing and decision making. The posts have been written by over 65 contributors, including Postgraduate Researchers, those in senior leadership positions, and authors external to the School.
The blog has resulted in a number of outcomes, including: gaining participants for a research study; increasing the number of attendees at an event; increasing the number of visits to the authors online profiles; and a request for new collaborations with academics from other research institutes.
After a successful first year, the Business School will be adding to the variety of blog posts by featuring video content as well as written articles.
