To be undertaken with Professor Haiyang Song of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the project will focus on the elderly in Hong Kong. Its findings will facilitate collaboration between hospitality businesses, elderly support groups and Government policy makers, in an attempt to connect citizens from across generations with the aim of alleviating loneliness. The project will seek to embed a 'socially responsible' ethos amongst hospitality operators, and encourage them to pro-actively engage with those in their local communities.
It will also give confidence to those who may not previously have used hospitality services so they become more willing to interact with others.
The centre aims to assist doctoral students in the early stages of their careers in tourism research. This support could take the form of advice on publication, pilot studies or facilitating access to specialist events and further funding. By capitalising on our expertise in securing funding and building partnerships on an international scale, we enable students to engage in activity which complements or extends the scope of their doctoral study. The assistance we offer ranges from helping students with small grant proposals to fund data collection, travel or pilot studies, to more involved support with post-doctoral fellowship applications. Ultimately, we want to develop the next generation of tourism researchers and create a supportive, collaborative environment in which high quality research can flourish.
We are pleased to be offering PhD studentships. Contact us for more information.
Does your doctoral thesis interface with tourism, hospitality or events management? If so we would be pleased to hear from you to discuss how the Centre may be able to support you in your research activity. Contact us for more information.
