BICC conducts applied research and thus provides innovative impulses towards ongoing debates.

BICC understands its research as

  • problem-oriented: relevant research results can only be obtained by looking at a concrete problem from various perspectives;
  • policy relevant: applied research findings are intended and prepared to reach relevant stakeholders and decision-makers;
  • empirical: BICC-research covers remote sensing and GIS, discourse analyses and intensive field research, with an emphasis on participatory methods and a problem-oriented combination of qualitative and quantitative research designs. 
  • critical: BICC-research discloses its normative basic assumptions and critically reflects these.

BICC-research follows the DfG-guidelines ‘Guidelines for Safeguarding Good Research Practice’.
