Research at Hanken

At Hanken, we conduct both basic, applied and contract research. We increasingly work in cross-disciplinary project groups with both national and international academic colleagues, and collaborate closely with business life.

Research at Hanken is carried out at our academic departments and research centres. Independent evaluations show that our research is of a high international standard. The research efforts are particularly strong within our areas of strength.
