Research and development at FH Vorarlberg

FH Vorarlberg is one of the strongest research universities of applied sciences in Austria. Applied research and experimental development is primarily carried out in cooperation with regional companies and organisations as well as with international scientific cooperation partners. This means that the questions are derived from the requirements of companies and institutions or come from companies. The findings of the research projects in turn benefit the economy. The university is therefore an important knowledge centre for the regional economy.
