Todays' societies face complex challenges. At the Institute of Management Research researchers study how organisations and governments govern and manage complex problems in their endeavour towards more sustainable societies.
- We work from both disciplinary and multidisciplinary angles;
- We are aiming for not only achieving academic results but also practical solutions;
- We often conduct research in cooperation with or for societal parties: co-creating knowledge for society.
IMR hosts four departments that each have their own perspective on societal challenges.
