The UAS Technikum Wien (FHTW) currently has 4,400 students and more than 12,000 graduates and is the largest purely technical university of applied sciences in Austria.

Since 2010, projects at the FHTW have resulted in IT standards-based, interoperable software prototypes that have been successfully tested (IHE Connectathon, PCHA Plugfest).

In the IES Austria project, the FHTW was in charge of transferring interoperability know-how from the healthcare sector to the energy sector, as well as in the profile specification, implementation & testing. The FHTW is involved in several interoperability projects for the BMSGPK: ELGA document guidelines, OID Portal Austria, Terminolgieserver, framework guideline for the application of telemonitoring. Additionally, it is the first & only accredited training provider for the IHE Certified Professional - IHE Foundations certification.

The described activities are bundled in the research focus "Data-Driven, Smart & Secure Systems". More information can be found here
