Research themes

Our 6 interdisciplinary research themes reflect the breadth of our research activity at HFU.

HFU is represented on the Research map of the German Rectors' Conference by the large and highly productive research themes of Production Engineering, Microsystems Engineering and Health and Medical Engineering. The research map shows only outstanding research themes at German universites which have fulfilled required criteria.

The interdisciplinary CoHMed (Connected Health in Medical Mountains) Innovation and Transfer Partnership is funded within the framework of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research "Strong Universities of Applied Sciences - Impulse for the region (FH-Impuls)" funding programme. HFU is one of only ten universities of applied sciences in Germany which receive funding under this programme.
