PRME UK & Ireland Research Seed Funding Competition 2023/24 Announcement of Prize-Winners

The PRME Chapter UK and Ireland are excited to announce the winners of the 2023/24 Research Seed Funding Competition. Professor Georgina Gough, competition coordinator, noted the interesting range of research outlined in the applications “demonstrating the breadth of relevance of responsible management education to contemporary society and business practice”.

The projects that were successfully funded cover contexts including social entrepreneurship and fashion consumption behaviour, as well as those informing teaching and learning practice, specifically in relation to digital responsibility and socialisation. Finally, one project will work to establish a new academic network addressing the intersection of responsible education, time and temporality.

UK and Ireland Chapter Chair, Professor Natascha Radclyffe-Thomas said “The Research Seed Funding competition provides vital support that enables researchers across our Chapter to pursue purposeful and impactful research. On behalf of the Chapter, I extend my congratulations to all the winners and very much look forward to following their research journeys”. The Chapter would additionally like to acknowledge the five judges, each from different universities, whose voluntary work makes this competition possible.

The following projects will be awarded funding, according to our Terms and Conditions, and we look forward to sharing their outputs with the PRME community in due course:
