The global challenges of our time, such as climate change, the global food supply, the pandemic and demographic change, demand urgent solutions in applied research. Flensburg University of Applied Sciences has taken up this challenge in the Health and Life Sciences profile area and established research and transfer structures.
The Institute for eHealth and Management in Healthcare (IEMG) has successfully carried out award-winning international and national transfer projects with high impact over many years, for example:
- the German-Danish eHealth Innovation Centre (German-Danish IHK Innovation Award),
- "Demantec- Dementia and innovative technologies" (Land of Ideas competition) and
- a project for digitally supported prostate cancer aftercare (Schleswig-Holstein Medical Association's Quality Assurance in Healthcare Award).
The Centre for Analytics in Innovation and Technology Transfer for Biotech and Food Innovations (ZAiT) has been established to provide analytical support for innovations in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. The aim of the ZAiT is to combine the university's expertise in the field of food and bioanalysis with the needs of companies in order to support the transfer of innovations to industry.
