Key Research Areas of TRUST

The key research areas of TRUST are organised into clusters ensuring greater focus and enabling strong networking activity among members.


Every cluster is dedicated to a different subject area. The clusters, however, are connected in a variety of ways, such as joint methods and/or research topics. An additional connection exists in form of two Interface Clusters ‘Theory’ and ‘Knowledge Transfer’. They fulfil a crucial bridge-building function by forming the theoretical, conceptual framework for the Thematic Clusters as well as tying all research projects together and communicating key findings and results to the public for further discussion.
