From a societal point of view, prevention is an important goal regarding an aging society. However, wherever prevention is not possible, "regenerate instead of repair" becomes the guiding principle giving medical science an essential direction in its development. Research at the University for Continuing Education Krems spans the spectrum from the physical to the psychological, from osteoarthritis to the after-effects of stroke.   

The university conducts research on tissue regeneration and cartilage replacement; on extracorporeal procedures, inflammation and sepsis; in the field of medical technology and medical biotechnology; on neurorehabilitation and on psychosomatic diseases.
