Research at Aeres University of Applied Sciences

Our professors, teacher researchers and students carry out practice-oriented research together with partners in education, industry and government agencies. In this way, we want to play our part in innovations in the field, and develop our own educational and professional practice. This is our contribution to the development of scientific knowledge and insights.

Together with businesses and semi-public and public institutions, we formulate research questions. All of our research is societally relevant. Easy access to these results means that it is of immediate benefit to professional practice. Moreover, it enriches scientific knowledge. Each of the three faculties has its own focus and research program:
