Abstract

'Business as a Conduit for Globalisation' is both a national and an international research network based within Trinity College Dublin and a network of researchers studying networks from different perspectives. This article explores the operations of this research network and also showcases the network-oriented research undertaken by the researchers. The conclusions call for more research networks in business and social sciences research and increaed funding applications and provisions from the funding agencies. In a globalised world where business networks are a driving force, the need for academic research to guide and direct organisations is of paramount importance.

Keywords: research networks, supply chains, globalisation
