Explore the latest Management School research in the new issue of Fifty Four Degrees

The latest issue of Fifty Four Degrees takes to the skies for an insight into the practical and impactful research taking place across Lancaster University Management School. 

We explore how members of our Centre for Transport and Logistics have been working with air traffic control networks and other key players in the flight industry to look at ways of tackling airport congestion; and go into England’s National Health Service to see how they can bring more innovation into their operations. 

We also look at out work with FareShare, the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors; on Eden Project Morecambe’s transportation links; the power of women in family businesses, and much more.
