Game Research

The focus area Game Research reinforces and expands the scope, quality, volume, and impact of research activities at Utrecht University related to games, gaming practices and culture, gamification and various other forms of playful interaction such as simulations and apps.

Gender and Ethnicity

Gender Studies scholars focus on processes of inclusion and exclusion from a feminist and postcolonial perspective.


Geochemical research at Utrecht University emphasizes the study of processes taking place in environments near the Earth's surface, in particular, soils, sediments, aquifers, estuaries, and the ocean.


The GeoLab is the main laboratory facility of the Faculty of Geosciences. We have a wide range of lab facilities available for measuring bulk rock geochemistry, bulk rock stable isotopes (H, C, N, S), in situ stable and radiogenic isotopes (U,Pb-dating), in situ major and trace elements and crystallography.

Global Change Geomorphology

We study upstream-downstream links within fluvial systems, and analyse the fluvial processes across a range of time scales, from annual floods to multi-millennial periods.

Healthy Urban Living

The objective of the Healthy Urban Living programme is to create an authoritative platform for research and debate, to help cities become places that encourage healthy living.


History research at Utrecht University includes economic history, political history, cultural history and history of science.

History and Philosophy of Science

This research group tries to understand the nature and the history of the scientific enterprise and the knowledge it produces, which is a crucial part of understanding the world we live in.

History of International Relations

The historians of international relations study the developments in the international political system from the early modern period until the present day.

History of Science

The Descartes Centre for the History and Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities is a joint collaboration of all seven Faculties at Utrecht University.

Human Rights

The Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) is the key centre of expertise of human rights research and education at Utrecht University. SIM offers internationally oriented study programmes, conducts interdisciplinary research and organises a range of activities in the field of human rights.


We study nonlinear coupled processes of flow and transport in porous media. We focus on modelling of soil and groundwater pollution and remediation, flow and transport in biological material (e.g. brain)and industrial porous media (e.g. fuel cells).

Ice and Climate

This research group investigates the exchange processes between atmosphere and ice/snow surfaces and the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets.

Infection & Immunity

The program aims to discover principles of infection and associated pathobiology at the cellular, organ, host, and population level with the goal to develop novel infection intervention and prevention strategies.

Infection and Immunity

In Utrecht, we try to unravel the mechanisms behind infection and immunity.

Innovation Studies

We investigate the dynamics of emerging technologies and innovations that are relevant for societal problems.

Inorganic Chemistry & Catalysis

The research in this group involves synthesis, characterization and performance of well-defined solid catalysts and related functional materials for gas storage and photochemical conversion processes.

Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (IMAU)

The mission of the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht (IMAU) is to contribute to the basic science of the oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere.

Institute for Subatomic Physics

Researchers at this institute conduct fundamental experimental research into the building blocks of matter and the various forces acting on those building blocks.

Institute for Theoretical Physics

Researchers at this institute use concepts and methods encoded in mathematical language to explain physical reality.
