Research at the St. Pölten UAS

At the St. Pölten UAS, scientists conduct research in six institutes, a Josef Ressel Center on the topic of IT Security, and the Centre for Digital Health Innovation. Interdisciplinary research plays a particularly important role – networking between the different disciplines is growing stronger and the expertise of the individual institutes is increasingly combined. In the year 2018, the St. Pölten UAS generated a turnover of almost 2.5 million EUR with 105 research projects.
