The University’s Strategy in the field of research and innovation is implemented by the University’s faculties and research institutes, assisted by departments subordinated by the Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation and other non-academic departments.
The achievement of the goals of research and innovation defined in the University’s Strategy is coordinated by the Vice-Rector for Research and Innovation, who is advised by the University Research Strategy Committee.
Research activities in the faculties are organized and coordinated by vice-deans of research, and the performance of research activities is ensured by deans. In research institutes, these functions are performed by their directors.
Doctoral committees assist in the coordination of research fields developed at the University, as well as interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary activities.
In the faculties, the academic staff gathers in research groups. Research groups carry out research on particular topics that contribute to the sustainable development of the region and ensure research-based studies, cooperation with business, and talent development. More information on research groups can be found on the website of each research group.
The University’s R&D&I infrastructure is presented in the Open Access Centre Information System (APCIS) and is managed through the laboratory centres of faculties, the laboratories of research institutes, concentrating research equipment in large structures and thus increasing its operational efficiency. The system APCIS also includes more than 1,200 research services provided by University researchers, which can be used by business, public institution and researchers.
