Research & Development at FH Upper Austria
As leading University of Applied Sciences in Austria we are experienced in successfully carrying out R&D projects. Enterprises with scarce personnel resources or limited funds available for their own research and development activities (small and medium-sized enterprises) are addressed on the one hand, while solutions are being developed for enterprises in need of support in specialised fields (e.g. in the form of special devices) on the other. But we also provide associations and institutions, particularly in the social sector, with the innovative products and processes they require.
Every year more than 400 projects are realized at our university. Small single projects for enterprises, multi-annual and publicly financial supported projects up to long-term partnerships in research centers, located at our schools.
The University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria is increasingly focusing on cross-border research and development. We expand our partnerships with international universities and companies. In addition to international R & D projects, our researchers complete exchange programmes at foreign universities.
But there is another import aspect of R&D we highly prioritize: interdisciplinary research and development. The combination of different research fields of economics, technology and social sciences results in solutions that are even closer to the users’ needs and give economy and society the decisive lead.
