Your postgraduate research
My PhD focused on new industrial (path) creation and the spatial evolution of new industries over time.
I looked at path creation in the evolution of North East England’s offshore wind and printable electronics industries.
I did this with reference to new theories associated with evolutionary economic geography.
I chose to study a PhD at CURDS because of its standing and reputation in the local and regional academic and policy community.
Many academics at CURDS are:
- respected interna
- share research interests
particularly related to territorial innovation and new industrial path creation, that match my own.
Studying with CURDS
As someone who studied part-time, I valued the flexibility and ongoing support provided by my PhD supervisors.
Along with face-to-face bi-monthly meetings, it was important I had tutors I could approach on an ad-hoc basis.
Both my PhD supervisors gave me this support.
