The focus of the Eudaimonia Institute is on research in human sciences. The institute supports disciplinary research in human sciences, and multidisciplinary research both across human sciences and between human sciences and other fields of science.
Funded research projects are the core the Eudaimonia Institute. The University funds two types of research projects via Eudaimonia and other Focus Institutes: spearhead projects and emerging projects. The projects are selected once every 4 years.
