Research in the Faculty of Social & Behavioural Sciences is centred around five Research Priorities. These build on the proven expertise within the faculty and are closely connected to the university's research profile.

Our researchers participate in renowned research networks in the Netherlands and beyond and are frequently awarded prestigious prizes and grants. Their research provides further insight into wide-ranging issues surrounding behaviour and society and the connections between them.

The Research Institute is responsible for safeguarding the quality of the research and for organising the faculty's research programmes.
