ISU defines the notion of an Innovative Research as a cross disciplinary understanding that focuses on the analysis of how the new knowledge comes into being. Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, descriptions, or skills, which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning. Knowledge can refer to a theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. Our particular interest is on integrated research of products and services, sometimes called product-service-systems (PSS).
Innovative research can be focused on single or multiple actors and their roles within innovative systems, such as firms in general, manufacturer/ producer, market intermediaries (e.g., consultancies, brokers), consumer/ user and user communities, supplier, non-governmental, governmental and regulatory bodies, etc. ISU encourages its faculty members to take part in regular study on national social issues, scientific innovation, economics and management of different levels, such as the individual inventor or user, within teams or projects, firms, across firms within one or multiple industries or countries.
ISU Research Center has started its activities phase by phase. In the first phase it has started to organize training programs on research and teaching methodologies with the titles a Training Program on Applied Research Methodology and an Effective Teaching at the Tertiary Level. It was planned to accommodate all the young teachers in each program and there shall be two programs in an academic year. Each training program is to be administered by one managing committee consisting of all deans and departmental Chairpersons. Dean of Business Faculty and the Director of ISU Research Center will work as the Chairperson and Secretary of the managing committee respectively.
ISU aims to create a significant open- access research sharing platform for the International academicians, scholars, practitioner. Very soon our peer-reviewed journals will welcome submissions of different papers.
