Sharing Knowledge

Would you like to make use of our expertise? We seek to share our knowledge with social partners and the wider audience in many ways. Read more about the possibilities:

Commissioned research and consultancy

As an institution, government agency or business, you can enlist our services for scientific research, advice and consultancy or education tailored to suit your specific needs. We work on research projects commissioned by or in cooperation with businesses, museums, government agencies and other organisations. These projects can result in a monograph, independent advice, a website or a database, to name a few examples.

For the fields listed below, in particular, we have extensive experience in carrying out projects with social partners and clients. Does your research question concern a different theme? Cooperation is possible in all disciplines of the Faculty of Humanities.
