Research

Research activities form one of the core pillars of operation as defined in the Charter of Frederick University. Consequently, the University strongly and actively supports the advancement of research and the generation of new knowledge through fostering exploration, innovation and novel application of knowledge at all levels and areas of the academic community, with emphasis on applied research and innovation activities. Through its research and innovation activities, the University seeks to contribute positively to scientific research, industry and society aiming to have significant impact in advancement of the local economy through innovative application of new knowledge developed at the University or through collaborations with other research organizations.

In alignment with the University growth strategy, the overall Research & Innovation Strategy is driven by the aim to promote and foster high value interdisciplinary research, by giving parity of esteem to discovery and scientific publications, expansion of collaborations and knowledge and technology transfer, resulting in positive societal impact. At Frederick University, we ensure academic freedom in research, freedom of expression and movement of ideas and at the same time maintain quality assurance in research involving the definition, detailed strategy principles and directives of the University. To fulfil the above, the University has established and operates the Research Committee of the Senate and the Research & Interconnection Service (RIS) to monitor and record the research activities and generally develop actions, rules and processes that contribute to the improvement of R&I activities by the University. The R&I activities fall under those funded externally through funding programs, those that run through limited internal or no funding at all, as well as technology transfer and innovation activities.
