The research group 'Health Economics and Health Policy' understands the concept of health economics as the application of economic theory to health and the health system. Striving to continuously enhance applied methods and analytical approaches, the group's research therefore encompasses the complex interactions between economics, demographics, epidemiology and politics with the healthcare system. On the cutting-edge of international research, its studies provide decision support for health and economic policy. As an important Austrian hub for international research facilities and organisations, the group's international contacts form a dense network for research and best practice that in turn can be used for commissioned projects.
