The USBE Research Institute was founded in order to promote research within USBE. The institute may award funding to individual researchers and research groups in internal competition on two occasions each year. In particular, funding is provided to strengthen new/emerging research areas ("seed money"), to support activities related to existing research programs, and to strengthen research collaboration with stakeholders.
USBE Research Institute introduced the USBE Scientific Awards in Business Administration, Economics and Statistics in 2017.
The idea behind the scientific awards is to celebrate scientific writing and to distinguish high-quality research in the field of the listed disciplines.
The institute is governed by a steering committee chaired by the Dean of USBE and the research heads of each USBE department. The Committee is assigned to make decisions regarding applications and to follow up the result from previous allowances. Furthermore, the steering committee should discuss the general aim and direction of the Institute and anchor its activities within USBE.
