The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration Research Centre is an independent research unit of the Faculty, supervised directly by the Dean. The Research Centre attempts to carry out meaningful interdisciplinary research in order to initiate benevolent social change. We are experienced in qualitative and participatory research techniques with a special interest in participatory action research. Our key research fields are:

  • local development
  • local sustainability
  • citizen participation
  • innovation, technology and human well-being
  • community-driven and responsible innovation
