The RSA East Midlands Branch Chair, Gary Bosworth, is a Visiting Professor at Lincoln International Business School and a Professor of Rural Entrepreneurship at Northumbria University.
“I first joined the RSA in 2009 as an Early Career Member. This was my first year at the University of Lincoln where I began as a Research Fellow in the Business School and now, as a Reader of Rural Geography, I am Deputy Head of the new School of Geography. During that time the RSA has been an important part in my career development.
With active Regional Studies members across our Region, including the Universities in Derby, Leicester, Loughborough, Northampton and Nottingham as well as Lincoln, there is a solid base from which to build.
From a local perspective, it is particularly timely to reinvigorate the East Midlands Branch to inform and support new policy initiatives emerging from the Midlands Engine Strategy. I am part of a new group developing an East Midlands Research Observatory which will can widen the Branch’s non-academic engagement. The research base that we build will also create new opportunities for regional studies projects, including PhDs, which can generate new academic outputs for the suite of RSA publications.”
Please feel free to contact me to discuss regional studies in the East Midlands area.”
