Congratulations to SCIS colleagues Professor Mike Danson and to Mr Geoff Whittam on their new academic posts. Mike and Geoff both recently left the University of the West of Scotland during session 2012-2013 to take up new roles elsewhere but neither are too far away! Mike has moved along the ‘M8’ to Heriot-Watt University where he is Professor of Enterprise Policy/Director of PhD Programme in the School of Management & Languages in the Deptartment of Business Management. Geoff, formerly Reader in Entrepreneurship at UWS, has stayed more local joining colleagues at Glasgow Caledonian University as Reader in Entrepreneurship, Glasgow School for Business and Society.
All SCIS colleagues are delighted that Mike will continue to act as co-Chair for the Scottish Centre for Island Studies.
