Public Value Engagement Fellowships have been awarded to 11 staff members at Cardiff Business School.

The fellowships encourage and assist staff to bring their skills, knowledge, and expertise to engage with issues of concern in society.

Staff are given the title of Public Value Engagement Fellow and are supported by the provision of a workload allowance and a modest expenses budget.

The issues or themes included in the new fellowships show the diversity of initiatives under the umbrella of public value. Fellowships have been awarded to academic and professional services staff. They include early career and senior academic staff across the five sections of the business school.

Professor Peter Wells, Pro Dean for Public Value said:

“The Public Value Engagement Fellowships are a tangible demonstration of our deepening commitment to using the diverse talents available within Cardiff Business School to help address pressing social issues, by working closely with communities to co-create solutions.”
