CESSMIR develops activities in the area of research, education and service to society. Moreover, the activities within these three pillars are linked to each other. Research, for example, is translated to education and in the service to society, and special efforts are made to bring research in and to practice. As such, research can be conducted on practices (e.g., the impact of training or support), or education can have a specific focus on practitioners and other stakeholders (e.g., the organisation of a training course).
