Research with academic and social impact

From fundamental to applied research

Research at Nova SBE spurs from the dynamic activities of Knowledge Centers, laboratories and other research infrastructures (LABs & HUBs), and also from the constant activity of individual researchers. They cross fundamental and applied research and aim to produce a high impact on business and management, public policy, and society.

Our researchers develop more than 100 research projects per year, which are supported directly by the School or contracted by national and international funding agencies and corporate partners.
