The Services Economy and Tourism Research Theme

Theme leaders: Professor Jim Deegan and Dr Eoin Reeves

This research theme emerges from the changing nature of consumption and production in modern societies.  At present, over two-thirds of those employed in Europe work in services (both private and public) and between 60 and 70 per cent of Gross Value Added in most European states can be attributed to services. 

The broad areas for research include transport, tourism and travel, insurance, financial services, educational services, legal services, business and public services.
