Interdisciplinary Research Centers

In line with its goal of fostering excellence in research and capacity building, JGU has established over 60 interdisciplinary centers that undertake research in a wide range of areas. Complex problems require interdisciplinary solutions and the JGU research centers aim to promote interdisciplinary research on important local, national and global issues.

Each centre works under the umbrella of one of JGU’s twelve schools and undertakes research on a broad subject area through supporting activities that include: research leading to paper presentations, publications, working paper series, and conferences; events, including visiting speakers (academics/practitioners), exhibitions, and study trips; and industry outreach, including consulting, newsletters, and designing/ sponsoring executive education programs.

JGU’s research centers bear testament to our aspiration to be innovative in our approach to higher education institution building in this era. The centers are designed to leverage our students and faculty’s potential and optimize internal and external participation and collaboration. These research centers are in addition to three research and capacity building institutes that focus on behavioral sciences, social innovation and entrepreneurship, and higher education research and capacity building. 

In addition to producing publications on current and emerging issues globally that enrich the human condition, many of the research centers publish special reports to bridge the knowledge gap in a particular area of interest. Many of the research centers also train faculty members and students in various research tools. In addition to engaging in various research activities, some of the research centers serve as think tanks and provide advice and ideas to researchers, industry leaders and experts.
