Director of Engagement

Professor Feng Li has been appointed as the Director of Engagement to manage the Business School's interface with the Newcastle Science City Initiative. As a member of the Business School's senior management team, Feng's main responsibilities involve developing new income streams through teaching, research, consultancy and executive development activities that take advantage of the Science City initiative; and to co-ordinate the work of the new Professors of Practice in developing programmes with the Business School that link them to the Science City science themes. His responsibilities will also involve helping building bridges for Professor Henry Etzkowitz's Triple Helix group both in the Business School and externally; and exploring how Professor Pooran Wynarczyk's Small Enterprise Research Unit (SERU) can be effectively integrated within the Science City initiative once it joins the Business School on 1st August 2007.

Feng joined Newcastle University from Strathclyde University Business School in early 2002 as Chair of e-Business Development. He can can be contacted at Feng.li@ncl.ac.uk, or by telephone on 0191 222 7976.
