Small Business Research Centre
Established in 1987, the Small Business Research Centre (SBRC) is one of the leading research groups in the UK in the field of small business and entrepreneurship. We have developed a growing international reputation, based on an extensive portfolio of research and consultancy, both in the UK and overseas. The current research and recently completed projects undertaken by the Centre are summarised in our Annual Report for 2016. We are also home to the International Small Business Journal, one of the most reputable academic journals on small business and entrepreneurship.
We also have links to the Global Entrepreneurship Development Centre (GEDC) which is seeking to promote international connections worldwide in the field of small business and entrepreneurship.
Our research in 2016 was defined by themes of contemporary social, economic and environmental relevance, including sustainable consumption, quality of self-employment, inclusive entrepreneurship, empowerment of disadvantaged groups, entrepreneurial potential, and SME internationalisation.
