Bissett Insider

Bissett Associate Professor, Paul Varella accepts an Adjunct Professorship in Holland

Bissett School of Business is pleased to announce that our own Associate Professor, Paul Varella, has joined the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at the Utrecht University as an Adjunct (Visiting) Professor. This institutional linkage will facilitate joint academic initiatives in research and education.

The Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development is the scientific institute for sustainability research and teaching of Utrecht University. They contribute to the transition to a sustainable society through scientific excellence in a multi-disciplinary environment. Their work is rooted in multi-disciplinary teams of four research groups: Energy and Resources, Environmental Governance, Environmental Sciences and Innovation Studies.

The formal connection will allow Paul to develop collaborative research initiatives and also supervise graduate students in their Masters and PhD programs. A program of interest for Bissett and MRU alumni is the Masters in Sustainable Business and Innovation;  offering the potential for connectivity to both the Institute for Environmental Sustainability  and the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Paul extends his deepest appreciation for the Department’s, Bissett’s and MRU’s sabbatical support and IES funding, which has allowed this one-of-a-kind experience for his academic work.

Congratulations Paul and good luck at Utrecht!
