      Since this project is created to be a breakthrough in violence researches and possible a turning point in scientific perception of violence with an effective practical impact, we strongly believe that we will have not only opportunity, but also an obligation to continue our work in that direction even after envisaged 5 years. That’s why we will submit several funding applications during the project. Potentially, this will provide us a chance for ongoing research of violence using our own methodology. Also, a significant component of Violence research lab findings in terms of methodology and data should be commercialized thereby providing independent income that will be used for future research staff position.
