Situated within Lancaster University Management School – one of the UK's leading business schools – the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development (IEED) undertakes outstanding work in the fields of entrepreneurship research, education and business support.
Its strengths derive from the close alignment of these three key elements and from the continuous 'real world' feedback that it receives through interaction with the business community.
Founding all operations upon the real and current demands of business is fundamental to IEED.
Every process, product and stage of activity within the Institute is informed by dialogue and engagement with businesses and external organisations. This generates a constantly expanding knowledge base which shapes the development and delivery of research, teaching and business support.
This ensures that they are always up to date, focused and precisely matched to the needs of students, businesses and the wider community.
