Bond Business School celebrates research

The Bond Business School recently celebrated Bond University’s inaugural Research Week, which ran from 4-7 September.

As part of the week, the Faculty ran a poster competition to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our academic researchers.

Open for all academic staff and higher degree research students, the posters aimed to highlight how current and recent research projects have contributed to the community.

Over 20 posters were received, split across the two categories of experienced researchers and new/HDR researchers in the Bond Business School.

Dean of the Faculty Mark Hirst, said the posters show the diversity of research being undertaken by staff and students.

“We had research posters on a wide spectrum of topics including workplace bullying, the effects of packaging sizes on consumption, human emotions and fraud detection,” said Professor Hirst.

“The Bond Business School has been recognised as having world standard research, and these posters gave us just a taste of the important topics our staff and PhD students are currently researching.

“I would like to commend all the entrants for their work and particularly acknowledge our winners and runners-up from the competition.”

There were many other aspects to Research Week at Bond University including announcing the Vice-Chancellor’s research grant recipients and a 3 Minute Thesis Competition. Outlined below are the winners and/or participants in the activities.
