The university’s Ilse Arlt Institute builds on St. Pölten’s track record of research into social work, which stretches back more than 30 years. The institute cooperates with researchers  from the social sciences and humanities, disciplines that play a part in addressing issues related to social inclusion. It makes use of new technologies for research purposes and social work practices, and is expanding its collaboration with technical disciplines.

The Ilse Arlt Institute has a comprehensive network of contacts with practitioners. Projects implemented in collaboration with social work organisations  generate new insights and promote the sharing of findings, as well as solution-driven approaches, innovation and quality improvements.
