Research

UnB is stimulating and strongly supporting the research–development–innovation triad. For decades, the university’s Innovation Agency has had a key role in developing entrepreneurship and innovation through national and international partnerships. UnB has outstanding scientific indicators, reinforcing its position as a bona fide member of the international academic community.
