Chris Cooper's visit to Vancouver Island University

Monday 20 March 2017

In January and February 2017, Chris Cooper - Co-Director of the Centre for

International Tourism and Events Management Research was awarded competitive

funding to visit Vancouver Island University (VIU) in Canada.

Chris went to VIU

under their visiting scholar scheme with the primary aim of linking in with VIU's

World Leisure Centre of Excellence and exploring joint research opportunities

between our two centres. Chris also met with their Vice President, Research and plans

were made for a major funding application in 2018 to create an international network

of tourism and leisure centres. There is also the opportunity to create a Centre for

Island Studies at VIU, with Brookes playing a key role in the initiative. Other

activities included presenting research methods classes and a public lecture on policy

initiatives for destinations in decline. The visit lasted for three weeks and has laid the

foundations for a close working relationship between VIU and Brookes researchers.
