Research is the crossroads where the knowledge of today encounters the potential to shape future practices. Florence University of the Arts sustains the development of new ideas that positively impact the global landscape. As an academic institution, FUA believes in the importance of research conducted in parallel with classroom instruction for the reciprocal learning advantage of the campus and greater communities.
Research projects seek to bring new perspectives to FUA academics and to the overall growth of knowledge in various disciplines.
Three main areas of research guide the direction of proposals and accepted projects in collaboration with researchers:
- The addicted brain: abuse and dependence – Common trends and mechanisms of drug and behavioral addictions.
- On health and wellness: living a healthy and fulfilling life, social interconnections and implications.
Both the FUA and external academic communities may submit proposals for research. Submissions must follow specific criteria and formatting that may be requested from the Research Coordinator. Research outcomes are published by FUA.
The 2018 research grant is currently open (June 30, 2018 deadline).
