Research on the Faculty of Health and Social Studies 


Faculty of Health and Social Studies focuses on education, research and development in the field of health and its link to social areas. Its aim is to link basic research with applied research. This means it is not "only" exploration of reality that surrounds us, but also about how to transfer this knowledge and use it in practice. Results of scientific activity can be seen in the context of publication output, conferences, seminars and also long-term cooperation with non-profit and public sector, which is focused on working directly with people.

Grant results reflect the efforts of the Faculty of Health and Social Studies to implement its research plans through grant applications in relevant disciplines and competitions. Thanks to the interconnection of health and social science, basic research as well as applied research can be implemented. This fact is evidenced by publication output in journals with impact factor and in database and reviewed journals. The Faculty also supports publicizing scientific monographs containing original scientific results. Relevant publication outputs are sent to the Register of Information on Results (abbr. RIV).

  • Nursing and midwifery

  • Social determinants of health
  • Special pedagogy and psychology
