Research, Advisory & Cooperations



The School of Management Fribourg’s (HEG-FR) activities in «Applied Research and Development» focus on two areas: we implement research objectives fostered by the HEG-SO, and we transfer knowledge into our classrooms and practice projects.​

Our objectives in «Applied Research and Development» are:

  • To run international research projects through surveys such as the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), the Global University Students’ Spirit Survey (GUESSS), and the International Entrepreneurship Survey (SIES).

  • To actively participate in international research networks and implement research projects, both nationally and internationally.

  • To contribute to renowned international conferences.

  • To publish about our findings in articles in highly ranked journals and thought leadership books.

  • To establish our institutes as key partners in the region for creating new knowledge and solutions.

  • To carry out interdisciplinary projects in applied research, in particular within the HES-SO and on the Campus Pérolles.


The three institutes’ individual strategies include:

  • Every institute is run entrepreneurially and is financially self-sufficient.

  • Partners oversee applications or business plans and continuously monitor the projects they support.

  • Collaboration with other organizations takes a clear-cut goal system.

  • The institutes complement rather than compete with other businesses. They offer consulting services to enhance innovation as well as intrapreneurial and entrepreneurial performance.

  • The institutes work in interdisciplinary ways and seek to foster a spirit of multiculturalism.​
