Scientific topics

Reserchers at the University of Split work on various scientific topics that are important for science in general, employees, students, the local community, and industry, and that provide the opportunity to position the University as relevant and modern. Through scientific research, the University attracts top researchers and students, and improves the quality of teaching. 
Through research and innovative approaches, the University strives to contribute to the United Nations´ 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030.
 
Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Naval Architecture in Split, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy in Split, Maritime Faculty in Split, University Department of Professional Studies in Split, Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split, Center of Excellence for Science and Technology, Faculty of Science in Split, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split and the School of Medicine in Split are dedicated to research and development of new solutions that will contribute to the green transition and sustainable development. These researches cover a wide range of areas, from the development of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency and power systems, to innovative materials and advanced technologies such as robotics, bionics, neuroelectronics, nanomaterials and geotechnics. Therefore, these areas are of vital importance for the development of sustainable technologies (chemical, food, biotechnology, etc.) and solutions that will help in the fight against climate change, as well as for the promotion of circular economy and green technologies.
The digital transition is horizontal and permeates all areas from upbringing, education, work and research to security, energy and social media, especially at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split, the University Department of Professional Studies in Split, the Maritime Faculty in Split, Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split, Faculty of Science in Split, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture, and Geodesy in Split, Academy of Arts in Split, University Department of Forensic Science in Split, School of Medicine in Split, University Department of Health Studies in Split, the Catholic Faculty of Theology in Split and the Faculty of Law in Split. Research on this topic at the University of Split focuses on a wide range of areas, including mathematical and computational methods, model making, software and hardware development, security, digital services and business models, and models for decision support in urban infrastructure management. Related social challenges, such as the right to privacy, and the general social and ethical implications of digital transformation are also explored. Digital transformation has great potential for improving the quality of life and creating a sustainable future, but at the same time, it creates new challenges. The University of Split strives to understand and solve these challenges so that digitalization is at the service of society and the community in general.
Within this topic, researchers from the Faculty of Science in Split, the University Department of Marine Studies in Split, the University Department of Forensic Sciences in Split, the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split, the Maritime Faculty in Split, the Faculty of Law in Split, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split, the Center of Excellence for Science and Technology, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy in Split, and the University Department of Professional Studies in Split focus on a wide range of areas, including the ecology of natural communities (sea, water, soil, plants, etc.), chemical profiling and potential of natural compounds, agriculture, blue biotechnology, food technology and bioeconomy. Areas such as shipping, hydrography, shipbuilding, seaports, maritime law and transport are also explored, with a special emphasis on the sustainable development of water management and maritime facilities and systems, and water protection.
Scientists at the University of Split base their research on the sustainable management and engineering of the built environment and the approach to management on the concept of smart cities.

A resilient society also includes forensic studies, especially of a sustainable economy and possible financial manipulation. The University of Split plays an important role in promoting sustainable development and the development of socially responsible behaviour. Through the research of scientists from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split, the University Department of Forensic Sciences in Split, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy in Split, the University Department of Professional Studies in Split, the Faculty of Maritime Studies in Split, the Faculty of Science in Split, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Split, the University creates new knowledge and new ideas for solving today's complex problems and offers solutions for creating a more sustainable and resilient society..
Ensuring a healthy, active, and independent life requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and, transdisciplinary approach which can be achieved through translational research in biomedicine, from prevention, physical activity and sports, mental health, healthy food and nutrition, development of new medicinal substances for prevention and treatment, all the way to new methods, technologies, and diagnostics, and the organization of work and the provision of healthcare. In addition, the contribution of engaging in kinesiological activities to health and anthropological status is important, as well as considering the role of law in medicine and sports. Sub-themes within the scientific research topic "Healthy Living" are represented in the work of the University of Split School of Medicine, the University Department of Forensic Sciences, the University Department of Health Studies, the Faculty of Science in Split, the Faculty of Kinesiology in Split, the Faculty of Chemistry and Technology in Split, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split and the Faculty of Law in Split.
The University of Split´s geographical position abounds in cultural heritage sites from prehistoric to modern times. Research areas aim to contribute to the preservation and valorization of cultural heritage and to the understanding and presentation of the rich cultural identity of Dalmatia and Croatia. Subareas of this research area include research in art, archaeology, ethnology, history, linguistics, sociology, anthropology and other social and humanistic disciplines. Scientists from the Faculty of Philosophy in Split, the Academy of Arts in Split, the University Department of Forensic Sciences, the Faculty of Kinesiology in Split, the Catholic Faculty of Theology in Split, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism in Split, the University Department of Professional Studies in Split, The Maritime Faculty in Split, the School of Medicine in Split, and the Faculty of Law in Split strive to understand and valorize cultural heritage, promote cultural tourism, and contribute to the development of cultural policies and practices through their research. The University's goal is the preservation and presentation of cultural heritage for future generations, but also its valorization as a resource for sustainable development and improvement of the community's life quality. As part of the European Union membership, we participate in the harmonization of croatian and european law and contribute to the organization and development of the croatian judiciary and state administration.
