Dr. Jeremy Hall joined the Beedie School of Business in September 2007. He is a Fellow of The Centre of Innovation Studies (THECIS) and SFU’s Latin American Studies (LAS). He teaches Strategy, Management of Technology and Business & Society, and his research interests include sustainable development innovation, stakeholder ambiguity, radical technology development, entrepreneurial learning for social inclusion and inter-firm innovation dynamics. Jeremy has conducted international research in the aerospace, agricultural, chemicals, consultancy, energy, forestry, retailing and tourism sectors with support from Genome Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

A major stream of Jeremy’s research is focused on Brazilian policies for innovation and sustainable development, in collaboration with Drs Stelvia Matos and Bruno Silvestre. These studies have been supported by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the most recent being a 3-year grant entitled “The Impact of Cash Transfer Policies on Entrepreneurial Activities in Impoverished Communities” awarded in 2009. Another stream of research is concerned with managing the technological, commercial, organizational and social uncertainties of innovation, with support from SSHRC and Genome Canada.

Jeremy is the Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Engineering and Technology Management (JET-M), an international scholarly refereed research journal which aims to promote the theory and practice of technology, innovation, and engineering management (see According to Thomson-Reuters 2013 Journal Citation reports, JET-M has an impact factor of 2.106, ranking 28 out of 110 for journals listed under Business, 40 out of 172 for Management and 5 out of 43 for Engineering (Industrial).  He is also an editorial board member for the Journal of Business Venturing and Technovation.

Jeremy holds an MBA and B.Sc. from Dalhousie University and a D.Phil. from SPRU, Science & Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex, where he was also a Research Fellow and Lecturer. Prior to joining SFU he was an associate professor with the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary.

Specialization and Research Interests

Sustainable development innovation, stakeholder ambiguity, social impacts of innovation, entrepreneurial learning for social inclusion, sustainable supply chains and Brazilian industrial policy. Dr Hall currently holds a SSHRC grant exploring the impact of Brazilian poverty reduction programs on entrepreneurial dynamics, and whether they lead to productive, unproductive or destructive outcomes, and is the lead investigator for two GE3LS (Genomics, Economy, Economics, Ethics, Law and Society) Genome Canada grants investigating the commercialization of biotechnology in the forestry sector.
