In line with its ambition to strengthen connections with external stakeholders and partners, School research ethos creates a focus on synergistic combination of different disciplines through which fertile new fields of knowledge emerge.

The School acknowledges that meaningful collaboration between disciplines is a significant advantage in a world that now recognizes that many problems are not the province of any one specialization, but are best tackled by multidisciplinary teams.

Convergence research transcends the traditional dichotomy between basic and applied research by accelerating the application of basic research outputs to impact and benefit the economy and society.

FESS combines academic excellence and expertise with a focus on strategic applied research, innovation, and knowledge transfer. FESS graduates demonstrate outstanding achievements in advancing knowledge and making breakthroughs of relevance to the economic, social and cultural development of society.
