Entrepreneurship, Institutions and Institutional change; Regional innovation; Social innovation; Judge Business School; School of Technology

Professor Paul Tracey is a Professor of Innovation and Organization at Judge Business School, the Co-Director of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation and a Fellow of Hughes Hall. He is also a member of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative and of the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP).

A core element of Paul’s research is focused on the management of organizations located in poor places that seek to promote economic development, support marginalized people, and build community cohesion.

This and his research projects on entrepreneurship in emerging markets and the geography of innovation can impact the lives of the world’s poorest 3 billion people.

Paul’s interest in exchanging ideas with people from different disciplinary backgrounds who are interested in how to address some of the most deep-rooted social problems around the world addressed by the Sustainable Development Goals underlies his motivation to participate in Cambridge Global Challenges.
