Research at the KSH
Research and practice-oriented development projects have a long tradition at the KSH Munich. In terms of the requirements of professional practice in social work, childhood education, educational sciences, nursing management and nursing education, the vocational disciplines must establish and further develop their own academic foundations. Due to their close links with daily practice, universities of applied sciences are particularly suited to carry out such research. The KSH actively provides the opportunity for lecturers to conduct research and encourages students to participate.
The research and development sector is led by the Vice-President Prof. Dr. Martina Wolfinger.
The Research and Development Centre (Z:F:E - Zentrum für Forschung und Entwicklung) has the task of coordinating and carrying out research and development into the fields of (early) childhood education, nursing and care research. The R&D activities are focused on the immediate needs in practice, which is reflected in the main areas of research. An innovative feature at the university is the The Interdisciplinary "Center for Aging: Reserarch for the Future", which combines relevant research, teaching and transfer on the topic of ageing under one roof.

The Interdisciplinary Competence Centre "Centre for Aging: Research for the Future"
The KSH is home to the The Interdisciplinary Competence Centre "Centre for Aging: Research for the Future", which combines all activities in research, teaching and transfer related to the topic of ageing. The university tackles an important social issue which will soon become even more significant by thinking about the future based on the three terms of academia, action and expertise.
