In the field of R&D the FH OÖ has been particularly successful since 2003 and over the years has developed into Austria's No. 1 university of applied sciences and one of the front runners in German-speaking countries. Research & Development at the four faculties is carried out by around 400 FH OÖ professors and scientific staff in more than 400 projects on 17 key topics and 6 excellence fields: Smart Production, Medical Technology, Energy, Food, Automotive and Logistics - practice-oriented with and for companies and institutions Economy and society.

We are delighted to announce that prizes went also to two of our research team this year: Stephan Winkler received the Researcher Award 2020 and Andreas Beham the Junior Researcher Award 2020 for their contributions within their research fields. Congratulations to both of them!

Tea Time Science Talk @ Welios in Wels with Michael Affenzeller

On Sunday, 9th February Michael Affenzeller is invited to the "Tea Time Science Talk" in the Welios Science Center in Wels. 

Artificial Intelligence has changed our world already and will still continue to do so. Many everyday objects already contain them so naturally that we no longer perceive them consciously. This issue and further topics will be discussed in Michael Affenzeller's talk about "Von lernfähigen Systemen: Wie gescheit ist künstliche Intelligenz schon?".
