In addition to teaching, scientific and research activities are the University's principal functions. Professors and researchers conduct scientific research not only in the field of economic knowledge, but also in technical, biological, and chemical sciences as well as the humanities. Their research is widely known, esteemed and used by the staff and students of different higher education institutions. 
Scientific research and international cooperation improve the effectiveness of the teaching process and foster the transfer of knowledge and new technologies to international business practice. We depend on and greatly benefit from EU funds to support our research. We want to infect young people who feel the call of science with this hope. The University has been involved in international research projects, just one example being the EU's 5th and 6th Framework Programme. We also have membership in a number of international university networks. The Centre of International Scientific Cooperation has recently been established to support scientific initiatives of academic staff and foster international research cooperation CUE researchers. International contacts provide us the opportunity to gain new perspectives on the world of science as well as the methods used by foreign colleges and universities.

Scientists at the Cracow University of Economics conduct fundamental and applied research. Teaching, the economy and scientific research are closely connected areas, each of which is crucial in making the complex common market system work efficiently. The whole of Central and Eastern Europe is an extremely interesting place from the perspective of economic sciences. Decades of socialism followed by transformation and finally accession to the European Union - these have been difficult periods for the region, while for theoreticians these events provide an inexhaustible source of research themes and opportunities to uncover the best solutions.

We hope that our experience and research conducted in this part of Europe will inspire our potential partners in science and animate international contacts in the field.
