The consortium is composed out of ten facilities providing high scientific excellence, long standing experience in the discussion with complex questions inside the health care system and outstanding competence in realizing challenging research projects at the interface between innovative development and effective and highly qualitative application in praxis .

Inside the consortium five scientific facilities are included, coming from the areas of:

  • informational technology,
  • statistics,
  • mathematical modelling,
  • visual computing and
  • public health.

The scientific partners are able to refer to excellent publications and research projects inside their scientific departments as well as to interdisciplinary cooperations, especially in the area of health care.

Among the partners two of the most important stakeholders in the area of health care planning in Austria can be found, namely the Federation of Social Insurances (Dachverband der österreichischen Sozialversicherungen, formerly: Hauptverband der österreichischen Sozialversicherungsträger) and the Gesundheit Österreich GmbH, institutes of research and planning of the health care system. They supply the K-project with current questions and concrete data coming out of the health care system.

Furthermore the consortium consists of three innovative research-SMEs, that are in possession of substantial experiences in the area of research & development as well as in the processing of research results. These SMEs are going to participate to a large extent. Through this K-project their positions as links between highly qualitative science and concrete processing can be improved. DEXHELPP is proud to have initiated a broad scientific cooperation, which is internationally perfectly interconnected in order to use the outcomes of DEXHELPP ideally. The composition, the quality of the project partners and the planning of the project correspond to the challenging assignment that DEXHELPP is going to address in the following four years. DEXHELPP is a charitable association in order to network in a sustainable manner and to enable future realization of joint projects. It is based in Vienna, from where the operations of the K-project are coordinated. The structure of the K-project follows the example of other successful competence centres in Vienna.
