Scientific research is also carried out in other areas at the Medical University of Innsbruck. Our researchers assert themselves well in this extremely competitive field and obtain funding both on a national and international scale.

A series of research projects supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the National Bank and the European Union bear testimony to our success. In addition, the Medical University of Innsbruck is involved in numerous international partnerships. Our employees participate in countless international networks and research partnerships as well as in appropriate scientific societies.

The Service Center Research helps our scientists promote and carry out various research projects. Our research is regularly evaluated according to strict criteria and presented in the form of research performance documentation.

The Medical University of Innsbruck has various partners that support it in its endeavours to promote research. Important roles in this context are played by the Province of Tyrol and Tirol Kliniken, with whom the University clinics are jointly operated.
