Nova SBE stands out in conducting research with impact among the main European institutions in economics, management, and finance. An interdisciplinary Research Unit (UI), under the leadership of Steffen Hoernig, Vice-President of the Faculty Council, and operational management of the Research Office, channels the activity of our researchers into knowledge centers, laboratories, hubs, and projects to generate research of quality, recognized by peers and world-renowned academic forums.
The objective is to produce a tangible impact on public policies, markets, business practices, and society in general, providing evidence-based solutions and policies to improve quality of life and promote social inclusion at a global level. The UI is aligned with the school's mission and faces the most pressing contemporary challenges, addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, EU guidelines, and the needs of the scientific and innovation ecosystem in Portugal and the world.
Nova SBE maintains its commitment to strengthening research capabilities through consolidated research groups, strategic collaborations with global institutions, and innovative initiatives that span the corporate, social, and public sectors. We want to explore new territories and to do so we want to attract, develop, and retain talent, build national and international research networks, generate research with academic and societal impact, and develop more doctoral programs.
We are at the forefront of innovation and knowledge, shaping the future of research and higher education. Join us on this journey of discovery and transformation.
