Sharing (S2B)

In the service of society we will focus on and rise to society’s grand research challenges.


We recognise our role as a public institution: acting in a socially responsible manner, contributing to society’s research agenda and societal development. BU research will have a much stronger societal drive defined by the BU Research Themes. We will engage with society through knowledge exchange and help define society’s future agenda via thought-leadership. 

The BU Professoriate has a vital role in leading this societal research and in generating the external research funds to sustain and grow our research base.
