The four universities of the TechnologieAllianzOberfranken (TAO) in Bamberg, Bayreuth, Coburg and Hof will conduct the joint theme year “Health” in 2023. The 2023 theme year will be designed and organized by Hof University of Applied Sciences.
With the 2022/2023 theme year, TAO aims to bring together relevant health experts, scientists and business representatives to address the most exciting and significant issues in modern healthcare.
By fostering regional networking among all healthcare stakeholders and strengthening information exchange, the goal is to strengthen collaborations, educate the public and increase awareness of healthcare issues, and attract prospective students to Upper Franconia’s universities.
In the kick-off meeting, the universities will conceptualize how to address the issues of modern health care. As the demographic change leads to an immense burden for the stakeholders, it is even more important to offer targeted solutions. Therefore, the different ideas will be developed based on the core topics from care digitization, psychology and well-being, nutrition, health data management, health data research and data protection and ethics.
In line with the goal of the Health Year: to communicate the competence of Upper Franconian universities on the subject of health and to position the universities among the players in the health care system as contacts for pressing problems.
We all benefit from a more networked healthcare system that breaks down intersectoral boundaries. After all, efficient cooperation between the players with mutual support is not only in the interest of the system but also in the interest of the patients. So follow the developments around TAO’s Year of Health and stay tuned for what we have to report in the coming weeks.
