- to generate knowledge (research),
- to transfer knowledge (education),
- and to disseminate knowledge (society).
Erasmus University Rotterdam is an international academic institute for critical thinking and academic training with a keen interest in current social issues. The nature of the research is interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary.
