Annual Research Conference, Imperial College Business School. Business schools are critical to a thriving and successful economy. A key contribution is through the creation of original knowledge that can be the basis of real solutions to real business challenges. Yet, delivering impact is a persistent challenge for Associate Deans, Research Directors, Heads of Research and their teams. Moreover, it is becoming more acute in light of funding uncertainties and the increasing pressures on researchers time and resources. Our 2016 conference at Imperial College Business School will tackle these issues head-on. We encourage all those who hold a senior position within research to join us for some stimulating discussion and debate.
