The Centre for Networks and Enterprise (CNE)

The CNE was set-up in March 2017 following the appointment of a new Executive Dean to Edinburgh Business School.

Its stated aim is to facilitate research in network science for the business community. 

The Executive Dean, Professor Heather McGregor, is assisted by the Director of the Centre, Dr Dimitris Christopoulos, a team of post-doctoral researchers and research assistants.

Scholars and faculty members at Heriot-Watt University (within Edinburgh Business School and across disciplines) are actively engaging in our research and workshops.
