Society/Business

Researchers of the University of Groningen contribute to solving social issues through contract research commissioned by the business world or social organizations. Society thus benefits directly from the RUG’s innovative knowledge.  

At the same time, science also benefits from this interaction. Questions from the business world often inspire researchers to change their approach. This also gives the University’s own research a new impulse.

Our scientists devote quality, inventiveness and passion to research into current social issues such as healthy ageing, energy and sustainable society. As a result, economically successful forms of public-private enterprises came into being.

A new approach to nuisance neighbours
A new approach to nuisance neighbours

Neighbours who cause nuisance. What can we do about them if matters threaten to get out of hand and eviction seems the only solution? At the request of the Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice and the Centre for Criminality Prevention and Safety, Dr Michel Vols studied the problem, together with colleagues at the Centre for Public Order and Public Security of the University of Groningen. Thirty-four housing corporations are participating in the research, with 54 cases being closely studied. The research is one of the flagship projects related to Sustainable Society studies, one of the research areas of the University of Groningen.
