What is our research about?
The value of practice-based research
Nearly 700 professors at all universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands account for a substantial volume of practice-based research. And our university of applied sciences is also doing its bit. Our research focuses for example on energy transition, the climate and all kinds of challenges within healthcare, education and the business community. After all, universities of applied sciences are ideally equipped to help tackle these issues by conducting practice-based research. In doing so, we rely on the know-how and expertise of all our professors and researchers.
Practice-based research at universities of applied sciences is research at the core of society. The question underlying all this research comes from the daily practice of organizations and professionals. And this research is carried out together with partners from the field. Results find their way into professional practice and to future professionals via the study programmes.
