Concerns and goals
Regional – National – International
The Institute for Applied Research on Ageing (IARA) aims to intensify and deepen the research on ageing at the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences. In addition, we work in projects and in regional and (inter)national cooperation with a large number of external partners from politics & administration, business, science and civil society and are present in subject-specific networks.
Initiator, transfer and coordination unit
The interdisciplinary IARA team develops innovative, application-oriented research projects on the basis of social challenges and on request from project partners. In this way, IARA supports the expansion of the research and development (R&D) activities of the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences in the research field and works on relevant and concrete questions for the public and society.
Scientific findings for politics, business and civil society
Our research projects aim at application-oriented solutions. The knowledge that is developed in projects with partners from different disciplines and sectors is made available to politics, business and civil society. In scientific publications and events, the results flow into the scientific discourse.
