  • Synergetic, interdisciplinary networking to establish and strengthen internationally visible cutting edge research in the thematic profile of the RC HCPS.
  • Strengthening basic research in selected research areas within the thematic profile of the RC to achieve highly visible results and solutions to open challenges in basic research.
  • Combining the two objectives above and in cooperation with research partners in the region, to acquire top-class research projects in this area on state, national and European level.
  • Creating sustainable research innovations with high industrial relevance.
  • Systematic extension and provision of living labs as demonstrators and experimental platforms for research innovations.
