With the TIMed Center, a new competence center for medicine was established in summer 2016. It relies on the expertise and infrastructure of the four faculties of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria (FH Upper Austria) in Linz, Wels, Hagenberg and Steyr that have already collaborated in research projects at the interface of technology to medicine for years and will be even more interconnected now. What makes the TIMed Center different from other institutions is its strong practical orientation. We value collaborations with companies in the same way we appreciate partnerships with universities and other research organisations. The findings we get from new ideas, perspectives and technological opportunities in context of our projects provide the basis for the products of the future. A future that you could be part of.
