UNE Business School News
Welcome to the July/August edition of UNE Business School News.

The past 2 months have brought with them some wonderful achievements for UNE Business School which we're very pleased to share with the Armidale community and beyond.

Our big news from August was the announcement on campus, Monday 8th July, by Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall, that state funding has been granted to establish the UNE SMART Region Incubator. We had a great write-up by The Armidale Express, cleverly titled "Ideas Brooder Hatched".

We're pleased to share with you a research - focused edition of the newsletter - the UNE Business School has some terrific research projects underway, as well as boasting some fantastic PhD students such as our recent 3 Minute Thesis School winner, Ms Kara Tighe. Kara will go on to compete in the UNE-wide event this week on Wednesday September 14, 2016 - we wish her all the best!

In early September, our School Seminar program benefited from the joint research project with University of Bonn, Germany - our
international collaborations only serve to build relationships with great work on food value chains, with a strong focus on sustainable futures in agribusiness.

This edition we've taken a closer look at some of the work being done by our colleagues on grant-funded projects, sharing Dr Boyd Blackwell's work as Principal Research Leader on the CRC-REP Project
Enduring Community Value from Mining, as well as Professor Mahinda Siriwardana's work with the ARC Linkage project in partnership with AGL, focusing on sustainable energies. These are just two examples of projects with significant outputs and impact, and further developments to come.

As always, I congratulate our staff with books, chapters and journal articles coming out the past two months - we are pleased to share this hard work with the UNE Business School as well as our broader community.

From the 1st of January this year, the shared project “Chain Failure and Chain Goods in Sustainable Food Chains” has been underway with a view to develop a theoretical framework that will enable a closer analysis and improved understanding of value chain outcomes.

Our Research: A spotlight on the Enduring Community Value from Mining project
Measuring the significance of impact of Mining activities in remote communities in Australia is the key objective of the Enduring Community Value from Mining (ECVM) Project.
The ECVM Project is a CRC – Remote Economic Participation Project, commenced with the intention of gaining a solid understanding of the effects of mining activities on the local community environments of remote areas, predominantly in Western Australia, Northern Territory and South Australia.
The team, lead by Dr Boyd Blackwell in his role as Principal Research Leader, are working on spatial and economic modelling of impact on these remote communities with intentions to establish  assistance for communities in anticipating impact from mining activities.
