Biography

Peter Lansley is Professor of Construction Management at the University of Reading which he joined in 1984 and where he has held a series of senior positions. Since 1997 he has been particularly involved with building national research programmes concerned with the needs of older and disabled people. He has guided the development of the EPSRC EQUAL (Extending Quality Life) initiative, has directed the EPSRC/BBSRC funded SPARC Programme (Strategic Promotion of Ageing Research Capacity) www.sparc.ac.uk and now co-directs the KT-EQUAL (Knowledge Transfer for Extending Quality Life) www.equal.ac.uk. He is heavily involved with advising research councils, charities and professional bodies on the long term development of ageing research and the UK government on the value and application of ageing-related research.
Peter Lansley has published widely on organisational behaviour, human performance, the management of change and, more recently, assistive technology, in which he has a particular interest. He has received several awards for his work in the fields of innovation and inclusive design as well as for championing the role of the occupational therapist.
He obtained his BSc in Mathematics from the University of Leicester in 1968, and subsequently an MSc in Statistics from the University of Newcastle and PhD in the Management of Innovation from the University of Reading. Although much of his earlier research concerned business organisation, leadership and corporate performance his more recent work has centred on housing, age-friendly built environments and innovative approaches to developing new research communities.
