OU scientific research is developing rapidly and is firmly embedded in a network of professionals within the different areas of expertise and in close collaboration with several external partners
Innovating for Resilience
Our research is rooted within the six faculties. Apart from the disciplinary research programmes in eight academic fields, the Open Universiteit has defined a multidisciplinary research programme: Innovating for Resilience. All faculties contribute to that programme.
The multidisciplinary programme Innovating for Resilience consists of three research lines:
- Safety and Resiliency in Urban Environments
- Learning and Innovation in Resilient Systems
- Innovation in education
Our Graduate School enables the research and PhD ambitions of professionals. The quality of our research is ensured by our research policies following (inter)national standards and embodied by an integrity and ethics committee.
