Research themes

The BUas-wide research programme has three cross-domain and two transversal key themes, addressing current and future societal challenges of local relevance within the global context.

BUas research goes beyond the applied realm. It is guided by societal challenges, embraces cross-domain and transdisciplinary approaches, and maintains strong connections to education and industry.
