The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) is located in the Duisenberg Building on the Zernike Campus in the northern part of the city. This modern campus also houses the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, several research institutes, the Center for Information Technology, and the ACLO sports centre for university students and staff. It is also home to the Hanze University of Applied Science, the Energy Academy Europe, and many businesses working with and/or started by the University of Groningen.
From the Zernike Campus you wil be in the city centre in 15 minutes (either by bicycle or by bus). For those commuting by car, the Campus is conveniently located just off the city’s ring road.
The Duisenberg Building was named after FEB alumnus Dr. Wim Duisenberg, who was Minister of Finance and President of the Central Bank of the Netherlands, and in 1998 became the first President of the European Central Bank. The building was fully renovated in 2010, aiming to stimulate interaction between scholars, both within and across research programmes. All staff members have a fully equipped office with state of the art IT facilities. The Duisenberg Building also houses a library and a fully equipped laboratory for experimental research and teaching, including: 16 cubicles to test subjects in isolation, 2 video rooms for observing group behaviour, and a room housing a Group Decision Support installation.
The FEB library offers staff and students an up-to-date collection of about 7,500 books and about 800 journals. The digital library gives access to various catalogues, over 1,600 electronic journals in the fields of Economics and Business, bibliographical and financial databases, and research papers. Online journals and databases from other disciplines can also be consulted. Through the inter-library loan system, it is possible to receive documents from other libraries in the Netherlands or abroad.
In collaboration with the University Library, FEB has invested substantially in access to external databases such as Datastream, Worldscope Academic and Bloomberg Next and doubled its budget for such databases to an annual budget of €250,000.
Research information system
In 2014 the University of Groningen implemented a new university-wide information system (‘PURE’) to register and evaluate research output. This system includes all bibliometric information on output and also holds repositories of full text publications. This system increases the visibility and dissemination of research output.
