UNIR Research designs, contributes and leads a number of Research projects, at Regional, National and European levels. We are focused on Educational Technology, since our university makes use of the Internet, as communication media amongst students, professors, staff, and general public. In addition, we work on Educational Innovation (e.g. Methodology, Personalised Learning, Open Educational Resources, MOOCs), and in other topics on Education (e.g. Didactics, Assessment), Communication, Entrepreneurship, Game-based Learning, Business, Big Data, and others. Following, we show a selection of news related to these active projects, funded by the European Commission, mainly. You can find the full description in other subsections of this menu.
