Research at the University of Liechtenstein is conducted with the objective to acquire knowledge, which gets transferred for the benefit of business and societal development. The institutes conduct research within four selected focus areas. Research projects, which receive support from national and international research funding institutions, focus on areas with a high degree of relevance for Liechtenstein and the region. The scientific utilisation of newly acquired knowledge happens through publications in scientific books and journals. Research funding is of key importance in the support given to the younger generation of academics. The University of Liechtenstein provides multifaceted opportunities for scientific careers, ranging from Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes, to Doctorate degree programmes and habilitation.
