Socio-Economic and Applied Research for Change Centre

Socio-Economic and Applied Research for Change (SEARCH) is an interdisciplinary research centre that brings together the academic fields of business, economics and sociology as core research functions. It also draws on areas of study such as social work, criminology, marketing and education as applied disciplines within an overall socio-economic strategy for enquiry.

SEARCH provides a vehicle for sharing ideas and skills across sociological and economic boundaries with the intention of producing academically informed and methodologically robust outputs that provide immediate practical solutions and real world impacts. It encourages complementary research to blossom through academic dialogue and outfacing partnerships with key commercial and third sector organisations.
