HSRI: Cross-Cutting Themes
The increasing need for investigating complex societal problems in a more integral way requires expertise that crosses the boundaries of a specific discipline. We connect the expert knowledge, experience, and related research networks of all nine Departments within the Herbert Simon Research Institute to obtain interdisciplinary knowledge that will increase the well-being of individuals, teams, organizations, and society and their ability to adapt to a changing living and working environment.
HSRI researchers have knowledge on cognitive neuropsychology, medical and clinical psychology, developmental psychology, organizational psychology, human resource studies, social psychology, sociology and care and wellbeing.
Our ambition is to contribute to the solution to the most important problems our society is facing. By joining expertise from our different social and behavioral science disciplines we are much better able to do so.
- Jeroen Vermunt, Head of HSRI - Vice Dean of Research
Our interdisciplinary research is focused on three cross-cutting research themes, which address actual themes in need of both fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research.
