Lauren Tuckerman

PhD Student
Glasgow Caledonian University
Lauren joined GCU in 2016 and is currently undertaking a PhD exploring models of Open Social Innovation to meet Societal Challenges with supervision from Dr Julie Thomson and Dr Geoff Whittam. The research aims to better understand how 'openness' in social innovation may affect third sector organisations' aims and outcomes (both economic and social/environmental). This will not only expand the research field of Open Social Innovation, but allow conclusions on the applicability of the model to Scottish third sector organisations.

Prior to joining GCU, Lauren worked in the third sector across various projects as a research consultant with experience in community consultation, monitoring and evaluation and market research.
