We deliver leading edge, robust and multidisciplinary research in collaboration with academics from around the world who are at the forefront of self-employment studies.

Key to the CRSE’s work is promoting the knowledge acquired through our research and providing comprehensive analysis into the sector to inform public policy and add value to practitioners. This is achieved through strong collaboration with a network of academics and experts in the field, alongside a dedicated steering committee who exist to set the agenda for future research.
