7 October 2020

Professor Ross Brown from the School of Management has undertaken research on the planned new Scottish National Investment Bank (SNIB).  The bank is a major initiative of the Scottish Government which aims to provide patient capital to high growth small and medium-sized enterprises in Scotland.  Brown's work has been published by European Planning Studies, in Mission-oriented or mission adrift? A critical examination of mission-oriented innovation.

SNIB has been charged with a mission orientation to help alleviate climate change, economic exclusion and health inequalities. Following the publication of his work on SNIB, Brown featured in a piece published this week by the Financial Times. See the article at Scottish state investment bank set to launch by December.
