BBS as an educational and research institution is committed to knowledge sharing and, in addition to our responsibility to the citizens of the University, we believe it is important to support the wider community through our own means. In line with our strategy, we therefore intend to work at several levels to ensure that the knowledge accumulated at BBS is used as widely as possible.
It was an important step in the life of our university when in January 2016, we were granted the status of University of Applied Sciences. Since then, the utilization of knowledge from scientific results has become a priority, both in terms of its integration into our training programmes and its exploitation by academic, corporate, public and non-profit stakeholders alike. With knowledge sharing being a priority, we aim to increase the economic and societal impact of our research, the number and visibility of our publications at several levels in the coming years. The enhancement of high-level and international scientific activity takes place to a large extent in the Centres of Excellence established by BBS. In the case of applied research, we aim to generate knowledge that is useful for everyday life, where possible in collaboration with business partners, thus strengthening the applied science approach. Equally important to us is the development of quality education and talent management, which will significantly expand the University's talent base and make science a real and meaningful goal for all teaching colleagues.
