Applied Research

Why should we invest in Applied Research?
“We cannot consider professional higher education without research” (UAS4Europe 5/12/18). 

Applied Research provides :
1) new knowledge, not a reproduction;

2) a solving of real-world problems;
3) a process of learning, translating into new teaching;
4) a cycle of collaborating and disseminating findings, solutions, and new understandings;

With the world expanding to reach 10 billion people in 2050 living in a world that is up to 4% hotter, innovation in new solutions, technologies, methodologies, work practices is no longer an option.  VPET has a vital role to play here.
