Research on ageing from the perspective of technology and health

The department HAT deals with the interaction between humans and technology. It focuses on social and technological innovations that support a healthy and independent life in old age – in one’s own living environment, in public spaces and at work. Therefore, it uses a strongly interdisciplinary research and innovation approach. The focus is on the research fields Active & Assisted Living (AAL), eHealth & Health Solutions and Participative Research & Living Lab.

Priorities for ageing research at HAT


The Department focuses on the evidence-based development of new approaches and on long-term testing under real-life conditions. Derived from the goal to realize long-term and sustainable research projects on an international level, as well as the related goal of a possible long-term research in the regional area of Carinthia with a high number of cases (n>100) for the research field, strong networking with the other two IARA research fields is necessary in addition to technological research and development.
