Focus on Research and Development

What makes our research and development stand out

As one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Austria with a wide variety of departments, it is important for us to offer research-oriented teaching, to establish research and development at the intersection of the disciplines and to further expand this position in the future.

To do so, we focus on the following aspects:

  • Application-oriented research and development with partners from the industry and the public sector
  • Ensuring quality through research-oriented teaching
  • Establishment of multidisciplinary research teams

Each department at FH Campus Wien has defined three main fields of research.

The research field of Active and Assisted Living (AAL) is a transdisciplinary field of research in which a total of four departments are involved.

Research infrastructure

With our own funds, and thanks in particular to the excellent cooperation with companies in the industry, we have been able to greatly expand the FH Campus Wien research infrastructure and make many things possible: Through our close cooperation with the Campus Vienna Biocenter, BOKU Vienna and the Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT), students and researchers at our Applied Life Sciences locations have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and an on-site industrial pilot plant. The highlights at our main campus include, for example, a physiotherapy movement laboratory and a laser sintering system for the field of rapid prototyping. With the opening of the Phoenix Contact Technology Competence Center in spring 2014, we have expanded our infrastructure in the research field of "Manufacturing and Automation". As part of a cooperation agreement, the globally active group equipped two laboratories for industry 4.0 applications in teaching and research.
