Best practices / case studies of cooperation

MED UP - Medical Upper Austria

  • The primary goal is to establish an institutionalised form of cooperation so that the medical, research and industry sectors provide each other with impulses and are enabled to make their maximum contribution to strengthening Upper Austria as a health, science, business and technology location.

Leadproject MEDUSA

  • The "Medical EDUcation in Surgical Aneurysm clipping (MEDUSA)" lead project, which is endowed with € 2.3 million, is to develop a hybrid simulator that offers a versatile - maximally realistic - training opportunity for neurosurgeons by combining the real and virtual worlds.


  • In the "MedTech Incubator" as a sector-specific start-up programme for MedTech start-ups, MedTech start-ups are supported in the implementation of their idea, the development of a regulatory strategy and a business concept tailored to it, as well as the acquisition of further funding.

Digital Health Call

  • The goal is to use the latest digital technologies, artificial intelligence and supporting systems in a meaningful way in all areas of life, especially also in the health sector. The Digital Health Call provides funding for cooperative projects in the focus area "The Digital Patient Journey".
