Medical University Vienna
The MedUni Vienna is one of the most established medical education and research institutions in Europe. With more than 8,000 students, the MedUni Vienna is now the largest medical education institution in the German-speaking world. With its 30 university clinics, two clinical institutes, 13 medical theory centres and numerous highly specialized laboratories, it is also one of Europe’s most important top-level research institutions in the biomedical field.
The main portal and the websites of the clinics, research centres and other organisational units are based on a common “construction kit”. This economises effort and guarantees high UX and UI quality
Based on the brand and corporate design relaunch conceived by Brainds, FONDA created a new digital design and implemented the web portal www.meduniwien.ac.at. This web portal is one of the most important communication media for MedUni Vienna, for diverse user groups such as prospective students, students, researchers, physicians, employees, cooperation partners, and press representatives.
The complete relaunch of the MedUni Vienna website includes a completely new web concept, a new image concept and web design, a new CMS (TYPO3) as well as new texts and translations.
The structured content of the MedUni Vienna web portal is based on the needs of the respective target group, for example a separate website for students at the MedUni Vienna. The web design relies on a solution that is both bold and reduced, e.g. in the form of full screen videos on the homepage, which were also designed and implemented by FONDA. The barrier-free implementation according to WCAG 2.0, AA was carried out with TYPO3 as content management system (CMS). The website was nominated for two awards: The German Award for Online Communication in the category Website, and the Econ Award.
After the relaunch of the main website www.meduniwien.ac.at, the entire MedUni Vienna website family with its approximately 150 individual websites will be renewed on the basis of the new UX and UI “construction kit”.
