Dr Ragsdell awarded secondment on Royal Academy of Engineering scheme

Dr Gillian Ragsdell, School of Business and Economics, is one of six UK academics to have been awarded an industrial secondment with the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE).

The RAE’s industrial secondment scheme involves spending up to 12 months working onsite with an industrial partner, collaborating on a project with a direct industrial application.

Dr Ragsdell will be working with the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), supporting their knowledge management practices and to provide sustainable access to the ETI’s knowledge resources.

Dr Ragsdell, Senior Lecturer in Knowledge Management and member of the Centre for Information Management, said: “I am very pleased to be able to join the ETI as a Knowledge Manager, and I feel privileged that the RAE has awarded me this opportunity. A secondment is an excellent way to inspire our teaching and to generate new modules and programmes that meet the needs of our future managers and business leaders.”
