Neil’s appointment will advance research and understanding of social enterprises in the province

Dr Neil Stott and his colleague Prof. Paul Tracey from Cambridge University’s Judge Business School have been appointed adjunct professors at the Faculty of Business Administration, Memorial University, Newfoundland and Labrador’s University, Canada, effective July 1.

Dr Isabelle Dostaler, dean of the business faculty, Memorial University said: 

“Both Prof. Tracey and Dr Stott are respected scholars in the area of social innovation, and the business faculty and the Centre for Social Enterprise will benefit greatly from this relationship.” 

Neil says:

“We quickly realized that Newfoundland and Labrador is an amazing place, not least in its rugged beauty. In rising to numerous challenges, including overcoming exploitation such as in the merchant system in the fishing industry and economically shattering events like the cod moratorium, Newfoundland and Labrador has been at the forefront of what we now call ‘social innovation.’”

Dr Stott and Prof. Tracey are co-directors of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation.
