Our activities

 The platform  encourages  collaboration on multi-disciplinary research projects capable of improving knowledge about the globalization process with a view to contributing to the development of theory and enhancing the body of empirical evidence on major topics and issues affecting international business and international management. A focus of the work will be to collaborate with a wide range of users of research output in international business to help them to develop strategies, policies and practices that enhance their effectiveness.   

Major focuses of the Platform are Economic Geography and International Business, the protection of intellectual property and international business, the application of institutional theory to major issues in international business/international management, and the Business History of Multinational Corporations.

We welcome applications from potential PhD students in the areas covered by the Platform and also from researchers interested in research in international business and international management in UK and foreign universities and research institutes.
