Congratulations to Dr Sola Adesola on winning British Academy Small Grant Award!

Dr Sola Adesola has won £10,000 to undertake a “University spinouts: exploring women participation in the Nigerian universities”. Too few Nigerian women researchers are leading spinout companies. Sola will be investigating the macro, meso and individual level gender experiences in university spinouts in Nigeria. The study will provide innovative insights on women participation in academic entrepreneurship, university spinouts and Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in Nigeria; and extend the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice’s framework on women and university spinouts to the Nigeria context.
