The Centre for Research on Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Bath (CREI@Bath) was established in 2016. Our main goal is to promote research excellence in entrepreneurship and innovation. CREI@Bath hosts a group of world-renowned researchers and rising scholars.

Research excellence

We show our research strength through:

  • exceptional publication and citation rates
  • growing grant acquisition
  • diverse international collaborations with preeminent academics

Our members have held editorial positions in prestigious international journals. Many of these are the top journals in their field.

Action research

Action research is pivotal to what we do, and builds on our existing and future work. Our research:

  • speaks to policy makers who devise measures to boost economic growth and entrepreneurship
  • advises efforts to encourage the commercialisation of university research
  • has immediate applications both for founders of entrepreneurial ventures and managers of established innovative corporations

Our members have advised national governments. We have also worked with international organisations including the European Commission and the UN.

We've collaborated with large international companies including Arup, Nestlé and IBM. We've also worked with local start-ups such as the Rocketmakers, Myvoxsongs and Cognisess.
