Prof Rob Wilson

Professor

Department: Newcastle Business School

I have over two decades of experience working on and leading public service information systems/digital government research and development projects for a range of international and national research agencies. This work is based in three overlapping contexts - the integration and information aspects of public services (in particular contexts of health and social care - including children, older people and families); the challenges of technology adoption, data, information and measurement in local governance (the NHS, VCS/Third sector and local authorities) and the role of information and information systems in education in particular HEIs.

I have lectured widely on collaboration, information sharing and information systems in public service contexts and have taught on a range of UG and PG management programmes including Research Methods, Information Systems, Digital Economy, Public Services Management and Partnership/Collaborative working.
