Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H)

Research

Witten works. In academia and society. And in the world.

International excellence is the focus of research at UW/H. UW/H is a proud member of an international research network spanning all five continents. Researchers at UW/H publish their findings in peer-reviewed international journals in the fields of Health, Business, Economics, Social Sciences and Humanities. We encourage them to participate in international research projects and to team up with international fellow researchers in their respective fields. Furthermore, we aim to attract international researchers for guest and visiting positions and invite junior and senior academics to join us at Witten/Herdecke University.
