The university's research takes place primarily in the departments and sections. At the university-wide level, there are research centres and research programmes.

Research centres

Malmö University has five research centres, which between them span fields in life sciences, humanities, health and technology. With a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research, they maintain a keen focus on collaboration. Working at an interdepartmental level, research is carried out alongside other academic institutions, the public and private sectors, and non-governmental organisations. The collective aim of the centres is to conduct research of high international quality according to Malmö University's vision and strategy.

Research programmes

Research programmes combine prominent research environments to increase the output of academic studies. The research is carried out by connecting projects that deal with different issues through a common theme.
