The Business and Economic Research Center (BERC)

The Business and Economic Research Center was inaugurated in 2016 as part of the activities of Erasmus’s BERC project (Developing the Capacity of Business and Economic Research Centers at Palestinian Higher Education Institutions). BERC aims to support research and innovation within the Faculty of Business and Economics at Birzeit University, as well as researchers and students through fostering academic interaction with our peers in other departments, local and international universities.

BERC promotes exposure to recent techniques and methodologies in scientific research, as well as improving faculty and students’ access to world-class academic journals and scholars. BERC seeks to create networks with the local community, including the private sector, policy makers and civil society to produce relevant research and contribute to the development of local communities.
