Feedback University Institute

The Feedback University Institute of Applied Research (IUFIA) is a research centre promoted by the eUniv to develop and organise applied research activities in the field of social sciences.

The IUFIA has legal personality and full capacity to act, and is linked through an agreement with the University. Several entities with an interest in its research form part of the IUFIA and participate with personal, material and economic resources.

The IUFIA’s main fields of applied research are sociology courses, which include both political and social aspects, and also courses on the organisation and management of university institutions and systems, embracing both their past and future.

All the IUFIA’s lines of research and projects are at the disposal of bachelor’s and master’s degree students wishing to participate by carrying out the mandatory work in their teaching programmes. Moreover, the IUFIA coordinates its initiatives with the J. H. Newman Doctoral School in order to cooperate with the Doctoral Programme.
