Glamis Research Group–Achieving Growth and Sustainability through Research
The foundation of the Glamis Research Group is the outcome of a series of bold thoughts and initiatives by a group of professionals with a common interest; Establishing a research culture at Glamis Business School. It is not unknown that the institutionalization of a research environment in Mauritius has always been a painful task and has been subject to critics at different levels. The tertiary institutions of Mauritius have traditionally been criticized for their poor level of initiative to create a proper research environment and culture. In many public forums, our tertiary institutions have often been blamed for the limited number of research papers produced.
In this context, the Glamis Research Group has decided to take up the challenge and try to achieve success where others have failed. Afterall, Mauritius, being classified as a small island developing states, offers numerous opportunities to conduct unique piece of research works that can be replicated to the remaining 52 SIDS facing similar scenarios.
The Glamis Research Group is composed of highly qualified and competent academics and industry professionals from different sectors of the mauritian economy. This Group intends to collaborate with other industry players and academics from other tertiary institutions both locally and internationally to foster research in Mauritius. Our conviction is that research can benefit the Mauritian society at large and find solutions to the many apparent research gaps that exist in the Mauritian economy.
