Research Profile

Research Profile

All Departments and Institutes at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences conduct research that is interdisciplinary and practice-based in nature and international in scope. All Departments collaborate closely with one another, and we are continuing to expand our collaboration with other universities of applied sciences both in Germany and abroad. As a partner to business and industry, we focus on applied research and deliver results with practical relevance in collaboration with them. These results in turn feed back into the education and training of our students and allow us to keep the content of our programmes up-to-date and relevant in practice. Quality management is one of the fundamental principles of our university (see Mission statement of Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences).

The expansion of the research activities conducted at the green Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences required the previous three areas of research focus to be adapted and extended in 2017. Nevertheless, the areas of research focus will continue to be presented in three blocks (e.g. on the research map of the German Rectors’ Conference):

  • Land Use, Nutrition, Health (new)
  • Precautionary Environmental Planning (former research focus of Technological Impact Assessment is now included as part of this), Biodiversity (new), Climate Change (new)
  • Renewable resources, renewable energies, energy efficiency (new)
