Our Partners

Hilda GmbH

Duervation supports HILDA GmbH in the development and implementation of the health technology meineHILDA.

The managing director of Duervation, Mona Dür, PhD, MSc takes over the scientific management and thus contributes significantly to the scientific foundation of meineHILDA. Duervation thus assumes a key role in the quality assurance and evidence base of HILDA Health Technology and for the planning and implementation of future studies. Duervation supports HILDA GmbH in making their data available for scientific purposes. Mona Dür is convinced that meineHILDA will set new standards in the research-based development and use of health technologies.


Karl Landsteiner Private University of Health Sciences

Duervation collaborates with the Karl Landsteiner Private University of Health Sciennces (KL) in learning and education research. Duervation will primarily be involved in the initiation, planning, and implementation of national and international research and innovation projects on technologisation and digitalisation of health. Our common goal is to integrate the topic of innovation and innovation development more strongly in the education and training of health professionals. Both partners are convinced, that the health care sector needs a variety of innovative solutions and that the education and training of health professionals can create important conditions for this to be innovated. Within joint projects that strengthen the focus on innovation in the education and training of health professions, we want to contribute to the further development of health care.

Hilfswerk Niederösterreich

Duervation is cooperating with Hilfswerk Niederösterreich in a non-profit research project. We are investigating possible changes in the activity balance of caring relatives after using professional care services. The research project is based exclusively on the use of our own funds. This research project provides a first insight into the impact of the use of professional care on the activity balance of caring relatives and can be used for the further development of care services. The cooperation is the result of a long-standing and successful collaboration between Mona Dür and Hilfswerk Niederösterreich. With this cooperation, Duervation is making an important contribution to linking research and practice and to the understanding of caring relatives in Lower Austria.

University of Health Sciences of Turkey

Another partner of Duervation is the University of Health Sciences of Turkey. The cooperation includes a non-profit research project to validate the Turkish version of the questionnaire “Occupational Balance in Informal caregivers” (OBI-Care) developed by Mona Dür and colleagues (2021). With the cooperation project, the two partners want to contribute to the availability of a valid and reliable Turkish version of the self-reported questionnaire for the assessment of occupational balance, which can be used in occupational therapy practice and research. Furthermore, with the provision of the Turkish OBI-Care, a valid and reliable measurement tool is available to assess and address occupational balance of Turkish-speaking informal caregivers.
