One of the basic tasks of Liberas is researching the cultural heritage of free thinking and acting. The collections are made as accessible as possible for research.

The scientific staff of the Liberas research team conduct their own research and collaborate with researchers from other institutes.

Central themes are those that revert to fundamental ideas and values within liberal thinking such as freedom to unite, freedom of belief and conscience, freedom of expression and press, the freedom to start a business, respect for national minorities and the need to improve the living conditions and development of employees.

Research is valorised by conferences, lectures and publications or support for publications of third parties.

The research group operates on both a national and an international level. Proposals for cooperation are always welcome.
