Due to demographic developments and the increase in lifestyle-related diseases, our society needs to address issues of health maintenance and prevention in order to make a contribution to a longer and healthier life. At the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt, these questions concern the fields of biomedical science, occupational therapy, health care and nursing, speech & language therapy and radiological technology.
The faculty collaborates with leading experts and institutions in the health care sector, commercial enterprises, an Austrian university, and one of the other faculties at the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt
The following infrastructure is used for the aforementioned research activities:

We aim to create a dementia-friendly library in collaboration with two other organizations in the community: the information service point of the city hall and the city museum. Experts from occupational therapy, health promotion and palliative care will work together with a self-help group including people living with cognitive impairment in this interdisciplinary health promotion project. The aims are to promote health and foster social participation of people with dementia and their carers as well as to contribute to de-stigmatization. Using a participatory health research design based on needs assessments will ensure sustainability.
