Hickson Research Day

Hickson Research Days are intended as venues for nurturing research-oriented activities within the Asper School of Business.

The late Dr. Allister Hickson, after whom Hickson Research Day is named, was a member of the Department of Supply Chain Management until his passing in 2008. This Research Day honours collegiality and interest in the research of others – characteristics that Allister fully embodied.

The goal of HRD is to showcase the innovative and path breaking research being conducted by the faculty of Asper Business School. Therefore, HRD presentations are deliberately short and designed to make research accessible not only to colleagues from across the School and from outside the discipline, as well as to general public.
