FH Upper AustriaResearch & Development

Applied Social Sciences and Non-Profit Management Research Center Linz Campus

Social and health services and other services under public responsibility are of direct relevance for the quality of life of the citizens. As a result of changing social conditions as well as economic and technological developments, a dynamic change is taking place in these fields. Innovations based on research & development make an important contribution to addressing these challenges.

Social science research in the area of ​​social work is oriented towards a critical reflection of social policy-relevant social problem areas and the development of action-oriented solutions. In addition to the research topic "Intercultural Competence", special emphasis will be placed on the area of violence prevention, whereby existing competences in the fields of criminology, developmental psychology and family therapy are bundled.

The research activities in the area of ​​health and social management aim for organizational and economic optimization of social and health services in order to achieve higher efficiency and cost effectiveness of the care systems. Special attention is paid to solving problems at the system interfaces.

In the field of ​​public management, the emphasis is on scientific monitoring of the continuing implementation of an effective management of administration. Particular attention will be paid to the challenges of inter-communal cooperation as well as the process optimization and participation processes required in this context.
