Faculteit der Natuurwetenschappen, Wiskunde & Informatica
The Faculty of Science is a student-oriented science faculty where research and education are closely related, spanning mathematics, computing science, physics, chemistry and biology. The faculty aims to be an academic community with an international character, where staff members from different backgrounds can combine their talents with the common goal of being a leading faculty of science in Europe. The Department of Environmental Science at the Institute for Water and Wetland Research focuses on understanding and predicting the relative and cumulative impacts of anthropogenic stressors on natural and human systems. One of the focus areas of the department is climate change mitigation.
The Nijmegen School of Management (NSM) is an academic centre of research and higher education, focusing on institutional and managerial issues within complex organisations in both the public and private domains. The research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto ‘Creating Knowledge for Society’, IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions. The debate on the fundamentals of academic research is organised in the IMR Academy, and the PhD programme is organised in the IMR Doctoral School. IMR hosts an Individual Decision lab and a Group Decision lab, which are especially suited for studying collaboration in complex contexts and collective decision making. Another area of research is innovation and entrepreneurship in business ecosystems.
