RESEARCH PROGRAM 2021-2025:
MARKET DEVELOPMENT: UNIVERSITY-RESEARCH-STATE
Grand Research Projects (GRP) represent the main organising principle of research at EUT, are led by senior researchers, and encourage interdisciplinary research.
Housed under the GRPs, the research units are the main mechanism through which the objectives of the GRPs are materialised through empirical studies, which – simultaneously – fulfil the objectives of the GRPs and are in coherence with the overall goals of the researchers’ individual research projects. The research units are also the main instrument, which welcomes and ‘houses’ incoming doctoral students who undertake research that fits the units’ main research objectives and interests. Research units, being attached to the GRPs and incorporating doctoral candidates, develop research projects that cannot be shorter than three years.
This organisational structure enables interdisciplinary research and simultaneously ‘orients’ EUT researchers towards those areas that are important to EUT and its partners.
