With the EU referendum fast approaching, a number of academics from the University of Essex are available to give expert comment and analysis on the range of issues being debated, including our director Vania Sena and deputy director, Jerry Coakley.
Academics based at the University of Essex are ready to contribute political, economic, legal and historical perspectives on the referendum and a possible UK exit from the European Union as well as expert opinion in relation to how the outcome could affect business, funding and economic growth.
Our Director, Professor Vania Sena, has a particular interest in productivity, the characteristics of innovation in high-growth firms, and the impact of corruption on firms’ performance. All of these can be used to contribute in her expert comments regarding the debate on whether the UK should exit from the EU. Alongside her is fellow business expert and our Deputy Director, Professor Jerry Coakley. As well as contributing to the views surrounding business impacts of a possible UK exit from the EU, Jerry will be able to offer comments in relation to his own research interests and determine whether the exit would have an impact on mergers and acquisitions, crowdfunding and the financing of SMEs, and commodity market anomalies.
If you would be interested in discussing any of the implications that a UK exit from the European Union could have on businesses, get in touch.
