Overview

Nova SBE Research Unit

Nova SBE integrates the three basic disciplinary areas of the School - Economics, Finance, and Management – and all its researchers into a single Research Unit with cross-disciplinary orientation. The scientific coordination of the Unit is under the responsibility of the Vice-President of the Faculty Council, Pedro Vicente, and the operational management is under the responsibility of the Research Office.

Articulating the activity of researchers in Knowledge Centers, laboratories, hubs and projects, the unit supports the School in the production of top-quality and worldwide recognized research on the most pressing issues that will have a lasting impact on public policies, markets, business and management practices, and the society at large. The unit concentrates efforts to strategically align the research endeavors with the mission of the School and the grand challenges of our times, as understood by the UN (17 Sustainable Development Goals), the EU, and the Portuguese scientific and innovation ecosystem.

Nova SBE offers a stimulating environment for junior and experienced researchers and set ambitious goals: to attract, develop, and retain talent; to develop national and international research networks; to generate research with academic and societal impact, and to develop vibrant Ph.D. programs. It has been under the scrutiny of external evaluations conducted by international panels. In every assessment, Nova SBE’s research was awarded the grade “Excellent”.

The Research Unit is funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (UID/ ECO/00124/2013 and Social Sciences Data Lab, Project 22209), POR Lisboa (LISBOA-01-0145-FEDER-007722 and Social Sciences Data Lab, Project 22209) and POR Norte (Social Sciences Data Lab, Project 22209).

Research Strategy

The strategic alignment and quality assurance for research at Nova SBE is provided by the Faculty Council and the School’s Dean. For the next five years, Nova SBE will aim to sustain and expand excellence, knowledge dissemination, and societal impact of research with international recognition. This strategy is based on the following objectives:

  • Align research with the School’s mission and the challenges of our global society
  • Enhance international research networks
  • Enhance science communication and knowledge transfer
  • Consolidate the international status of the Ph.D. programs.
  • Diversify research funding sources
  • Improve research productivity

The strategic alignment of research with the School’s mission is achieved through the overall coordination of the research agendas of Knowledge Centers and individual researchers (top-down approach to scientific development). However, the Unit also supports researchers in their continuous effort to pursue the development of entrepreneurial activities and disrupt the statu quo in established scientific fields (bottom-up approach to scientific development).
