Research units

Research units are not considered administrative units at decentralised level, but academic units founded as temporary or permanent collaborations between academic personnel around one or more specific research themes or fields.

A research unit may be established in order to organise, coordinate and/or stimulate scientific research.

A research unit can be founded within a faculty or department or across several faculties or departments if a research theme transcends the boundaries of a unit. A faculty founds a research unit at the request of one or more departments or faculties, or of the central administrative level.
