The NSM's research activities fall under the responsibility of the interdisciplinary Institute for Management Research (IMR). Under the motto 'Creating Knowledge for Society', the IMR focuses on academic research into the development, design and effectiveness of the public and private structures that regulate, govern or manage human interactions. The debate on the fundamentals of academic research in the domains covered by the NSM is organised in the IMR Academy; the PhD programme is organised in the IMR Doctoral School. There are six multidisciplinary research groups at the IMR linked to strategic and scientifically and societally relevant issues. The IMR also hosts the Individual Decision Lab and the Group Decision Lab, which are particularly suited for studying collaboration in complex contexts and collective decision-making.
