Aspect interviews Manchester’s Tony Walker


14th May 2020

We spoke to Tony Walker, Deputy Director of the Masood Enterprise Centre at Alliance Manchester Business School, about the increasing importance of entrepreneurship and commercialisation within social sciences.

In our wide ranging Q&A with Tony, we explore the benefits of developing entrepreneurial social scientists and commercialisation and some success stories based out of the university; how the Aspect network is benefitting Manchester’s work in this area; the work of the Masood Enterprise Centre; and, more specifically, Digital Futures and why work in this area is so important for social sciences.
