Dr Yaniv Hanoch, an Associate Professor of Risk Management at Southampton Business School and a member of the Centre for Risk Research (CRR), has been awarded an ESRC Impact Acceleration grant for a secondment to the UK Cabinet Office. During the secondment, Dr Hanoch will work collaboratively on a project that will develop guidelines and recommendations on how to effectively prevent and deter fraud against organisations.

Based in the Cabinet Office’s Centre of Expertise for Counter Fraud, the project will develop the recommendations (‘what works’) with a view to guiding policy makers on how to use create, and share high-quality evidence in decisions on how to fight fraud across multiple levels. In addition, the secondment will give Dr Hanoch the opportunity to work with the existing cross-Governmental Behavioural Science Network on developing an anti-fraud working group.

Dr Hanoch is particularly keen to start the secondment so that he can utilize his expertise in the cognitive and behavioural sciences to help tackle the pressing issue of fraud against organisations. In response to the award of the secondment Dr Ian Dawson, the Director of the Centre for Risk Research said “This is an exciting opportunity for Dr Hanoch and one that he is extremely well suited to. This is also yet another example of the diverse range of research that is undertaken by the members of the CRR and of the Centre’s commitment to use our knowledge in ways that have an important impact outside of academia.”
