Purpose of Scientific Research
Scientific research is used to seek answers to different questions of how and why something happens through a process of experimentation and empirical observations. This method uses matters of cause and effect. This helps to broaden our understanding of how the world works, and how societies/communities work, since it is about testing theories which are made by pure science, and applying them to real situations in societies/communities.
Our Focus: Applied Scientific Research
The purpose of scientific research, in general, varies across different scientific fields and disciplines. At the most basic level, it can be split, loosely, into two types, 'pure scientific research' and 'applied scientific research'. Both of these types follow the same structures and protocols for propagating and testing hypotheses and predictions, but vary slightly in their ultimate purpose. While FRERA is interested in conducting both types of research, our primary focus is on conducting Applied Scientific Research. This type of research looks for answers and solutions to specific questions and problems that help society and communities. By addressing specific questions and problems, and finding definitive and comprehensive answers and solutions to these, FRERA is comitted to make significant and meaningful contributions to Aruban communities, educationally as well as socially and recreationally.
