Research Topics

The European Research University is currently primarily an economically oriented university, offering academic degrees mainly in the fields of economics, economic policy, business, administration and management. Our research is therefore oriented towards these areas. Our priority is to conduct socially relevant research that is effectively translated into teaching. We also involve students in research, already at undergraduate level.

Another area that our academic and research staff are involved in is the field of law. There are a number of lawyers, advocates and judges working at the ERUNI, either internally or externally, who are involved both in teaching and research. Last but not least, we are engaged in research in other social sciences, particularly pedagogy, as we provide pedagogical education within the framework of continuing education. In all these areas of research we welcome new colleagues from all over the world, both for senior positions and post-docs.

Publication Activities

Our publications include research papers in prestigious, highly ranked journals. We also publish undergraduate textbooks and professional monographs and are currently preparing our own series of the ERUNI Working Papers. We are also actively involved in applied research activities, the outputs of which include software, methodologies or reports, especially for public administration authorities.

Research Projects

As a research university, the ERUNI primarily deals with basic research projects. However, we are also engaged in applied and contract research, particularly in the areas of other social sciences outside economics, i.e. law, psychology, sociology and last but not least pedagogy. The users of our results are public authorities as well as private companies.

We are open to research collaboration and welcome new colleagues in our international research teams. For research projects, we are interested in institutional partnerships with universities or other research organisations from the EU and beyond.

DANUBE Journal

DANUBE is an international professional journal referring to the tradition of the humanities-oriented periodical of the same title, which was first published in Vienna as early as 1923. Just as the Danube River connects European capitals, the DANUBE Journal creates a strong network of links between European researchers who have dedicated their professional lives to the social sciences and humanities. The journal also welcomes authors from other regions, as long as they respect the Aims & Scope of the journal. The journal has been published by the De Gruyter, a prestigious publisher with a history of almost 270 years, since 2021 in collaboration with the PRIGO University College of the European Research University. It is printed, but in particular it is published and distributed as an electronic open access resource.
