LSE Enterprise makes £1.98 million for LSE in 2009

chequeThanks to the 200 academics from all over LSE who worked with us last year, LSE Enterprise was able to hand over its largest ever cheque, £1.98 million, to the School this week.

LSE Enterprise is a subsidiary of LSE, returning all its profits to the School and supplementing academic salaries by almost £3 million in the 2008-9 financial year.

Projects in 2009 took place in 16 countries, with over 150 organisations. To name just a few, colleagues got involved in:

  • teaching economics for foreign policy to Foreign Office staff
  • running a ten-week course for Basque government students on European economic and political issues
  • training policy makers from the Vietnamese Government in globalisation and public sector reform
  • producing reports for the British Academy on how humanities and social science research can be better used by decision makers
  • providing expertise on carbon market regulation
  • producing the Development and Transition Newsletter for the UNDP
  • undertaking research on IT efficiency

We will be based on the eighth floor of Tower Three from June and look forward to working with more of you in 2010 – visit lse.ac.uk/privatework for the latest opportunities.
