BRU-Iscte is organized into 5 Research Groups spanning the various key Business areas in a way that mirrors our multidisciplinary strengths:

Given the great multidisciplinarity of the Unit’s research groups, collaboration across the different disciplines is encouraged. There are various examples of projects and research activities where complementarity across disciplines has been actively sought:

  • Project on corporate governance in medium income countries, integrating researchers from the scientific areas of Finance, Data Analytics, Organizational Behaviour, Economics and Marketing;
  • Project on public transportation for the Lisbon Metropolitan Area with researchers from the Data Analytics and the Organizational Behavior & Human Resources groups;
  • Collaboration between the Data Analytics group and researchers from the Accounting, Marketing & Management group on Marketing and Business applications;
  • Collaboration between the Finance and Data Analytics groups on classifying and clustering time series

Moreover, BRU-Iscte commitment to interdisciplinary research has led to several collaborations with other Iscte research units:

  • In collaboration with CIS-Iscte – 2 projects on water management and on quality and safety in the hospital
  • In collaboration with ISTAR-Iscte – applications for joint projects in the field of data science
  • In collaboration with CIES-Iscte – work on complex data structures focusing on household health
  • In collaboration with Dinâmia’CET-Iscte – research on multivariate data analysis with applications to economy

Another commitment of BRU-Iscte is it achieve a higher degree of internationalisation. Indeed, in the period 2013-2018, our current researchers have reinforced their international collaborations at various levels:

  • Approximately 40% of international co-authorships for papers published in that period
  • 28 researchers have been visiting researchers or scholars in foreign universities and/or hold faculty positions in 58 Universities/Research Centres of 22 countries
  • 21 projects with international partners
  • Over 40 international awards
  • Involvement in organising committees and scientific committees of 138 international conferences
  • Involvement in some 10 international research networks
