The Centre for Business Research conducts interdisciplinary research into the causes of sustainable economic growth and societal development. The CBR’s current areas of specialisation include the construction and analysis of large and complex datasets on SMEs and innovation, longitudinal analysis of regulatory change affecting business firms, and fieldwork-based studies of corporate governance and organisational practice. The Centre has made a significant contribution to the development of research methods and theory in the analysis of law and finance. The Centre’s research is disseminated to and used by managers, policy-makers and regulators in numerous countries.
