The institute organises specific offers for the further development of research expertise, invites regular exchanges on research and development projects and ensures quality assurance in scientific processes (research applications, feedback procedures and corresponding continuing education programmes).
The Institute for Research Development and Multiprofessionalism is also responsible for the regular publication of the journal phpublico and for the organisation of the annual research day to promote the exchange of ideas on research between teaching staff from all departments and to establish a broad research culture.
In the spirit of multi-professionalism, the institute develops and organises demand-oriented training and further training courses for teachers, among other things in cooperation with the Burgenland Education Directorate.
