She also works in the field of human ecology, which is an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary study of the relationship between humans and their natural, social, and built environments. Her work is also dedicated to the environmental and ecological economics, regional development and changes of the rural landscape. Eva Cudlínová was a member

Eva Cudlínová focused on the "smartness" of asofistikovaná specifikal, and its ability to integrate diverse actors in the region's innovation practice. She also discusses bioeconomy and its definition and relation between the development of new technologies and processes; development of markets and competitiveness and on pushing local stakeholders to work more closely together.
