A researcher from The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School has been awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Australian Laureate Fellowship.

Professor Sara Dolnicar from UQ Business School joins two other UQ researchers, Professor Debra Bernhardt and Professor Lianzhou Wang to receive the prestigious Fellowship – with UQ securing the largest share of funding in the competitive ARC grants.

Professor Dolnicar was granted $3.2 million in funding to manage the environmental impacts of leisure and tourism activities by creating a new theory explaining, predicting and eliciting pro-environmental behaviour in these pleasure-focused settings.
