Institute of Applied Research and International Relations (ifb)

 

The Institute of Applied Research and International Relations (ifb) of Mainz Catholic University of Applied Sciences, is the central service and coordination point for activities in the fields of research and international relations at Mainz CUAS. The ongoing focuses of the institute's work include impact research in health and social settings, child and youth welfare, case management, health and nursing research, ecclesiastical social research, and the international exchange of specialists and students. The specific profile as a Catholic university results not only in the educational remit, but also in an obligation to ensure the application orientation of the research and a transfer of the research results into practice. For Mainz CUAS this effectively means tackling current social challenges and problems.


A detailed overview of the research work and international activities of the university since the foundation of the ifb in 2009 is provided in the report "International. Practical. Social. Applied research and international relations at the Catholic University of Applied Sciences, Mainz 2009-2014" (in German only). The documented facts and figures, as well as the outlined project plans, provide information on the diverse activities that have been implemented since then on an institute-specific basis, independently by the respective departments or in cooperation between the ifb and the departments of Social Work, Health Care and Nursing, and Practical Theology. The report is available to download, or can be requested free-of-charge from the ifb.
