Lancashire Institute for Economic and Business Research (LIEBR)

Institute for Business, Enterprise and Organisational Impact

LIEBR is part of Lancashire Business School at the University of Central Lancashire.

LIEBR is led by a Director, Professor Philip B. Whyman, whose role is to coordinate activities and manage the work of the institute on a day-to-day basis. The strategic direction of the centre is directed by an executive committee, comprising the Director, the Deputy Director, Professor Andrei Kuznetsov, and two other elected members of the institute.

The executive committee has responsibility for reviewing the progress of the institute and determining the allocation of internal funding. The executive committee, in turn, reports to the Lancashire Business School Research Academy Board, which will oversee all research groups within the business and management cluster.

The institute is located within Lancashire Business School, although members are drawn from across UCLan. Postgraduate research (PGR) and Postgraduate taught (PGT) students are offered affiliated membership, thereby enabling (and encouraging) their participation in the work of the institute.
