Research area - Health and Quality of Life

Health is a dynamic process in which people try to find a balance within their environment in order to strengthen their physical, psychological and social well-being. Quality of life means that people can shape their lives as actively as possible, maintain sufficient social contact, and shape their lives according to their needs.

The Health and Quality of Life research area offers numerous points of contact for all seven departments of our University of Applied Sciences. In particular, however, the departments of Health Sciences, Applied Nursing Science and Applied Life Sciences focus on this research, in transdisciplinary collaborations.
