How do we conduct research?
The university pursues a broad spectrum of research types; interdisciplinary, clustered, forward-looking fields of research are what our research profile is all about.
We emphasize practically-oriented/applied research, transferring knowledge and promoting research career development in our activities.
How can we achieve our goals?
- Freedom in research is a top priority.
- All the relevant stakeholders are invited to act as partners in nurturing innovative research and development within the context of the university's diverse range of research fields.
- The university fosters an extensive range of cooperations with leading regional, national and international institutions, as well as academic networks.
- Pooling and focusing the research activities into clusters enhances the university's profile, as does independent research.
- Internal academic institutions help pool the research activities from a structural perspective and encourage partnerships.
- We build interdisciplinary networks by means of cooperation between researchers, particularly from different departments, faculties and universities, e.g. through joint activities in institutions and research centers.
- We believe that expanding the non-professorial academic staff is crucial to strengthening research activities.
- Increasing the opportunities to pursue a doctorate program is high on our agenda, and we see researcher training as a key building block of our teaching and research.
- We apply academically recognized evaluation procedures to our research activities and utilize quality benchmarks that we actively participate in shaping.
