Thanks to Long Standing HIF Board Member
Published on 27/09/2017
Elrha is sorry to be losing Professor John Bessant, who is resigning from our Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) Board this month after expertly helping us to steer the HIF’s strategic development from its very beginning. For John, the HIF has ‘come a long way and it’s been great to see how much has been achieved’ to date, as well as ‘a clear sense of direction about how the HIF can develop further from a platform of strength.’
John is Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Exeter Business School and has been active in research, teaching and consultancy in technology and innovation management for over 25 years. He is the author of over 20 books and monographs and many articles on the topic and has lectured and consulted widely around the world.
John has generously given his time and expertise over the past years. We are deeply grateful for his contribution and wish him the very best in all his future work and endeavours.
