Industry engagement with tourism research: The impacts of social control and emotional labour
journal contributionposted on 2023-07-26, 13:57 authored by Sally Everett, Tiffany Low
With mounting pressure for ‘high impact’ research outputs and the attainment of external funding, universities are increasingly engaging in industry match-funded doctoral research programmes. Promoted as effective approaches for engaging in knowledge transfer, the challenges around such collaborative partnerships are scarcely discussed. E-mails, journals and meeting logs over a two year period generated by the author were analysed to examine some of the challenges faced by doctoral students involved in such programmes. The findings illustrate the challenges inherent in industry engagement and the inevitable social control over research. A reflexive account is adopted to explore issues of access, the social control of research and emotional labour. The paper hopes to stimulate discussion on reflective practice in tourism, and howto improve these relationships and their outcomes.
