Let us know what you think! From small gaps to big issues, we would love to hear your opinion on which research questions and topics should be investigated. Please participate in our short survey available here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ie_research . It will only take about five minutes to complete.

 

We aim to foster research collaborations and connect people with converging research interests

Researchers: Would you like to contribute with your own findings? Are you looking for research partnerships or collaborators on similar topics?

University tutors: do you have students that would be happy to write a thesis on any of these topics?

Professionals: Would you like your institution to be examined as a case study?
