Graz University of Technology

As the name suggests, Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) is located in the centre of Graz, the second biggest city in Austria. With eight institutions of higher education, Graz is a real student city and is regarded as one of the cities of central Europe and the European Union with the highest quality of life. Research activities at TU Graz range from top-quality basic research through application-driven basic research to industrial implementation. Outstanding research facilities, substantial external funding, knowledge transfer and English-language doctoral programmes create fertile ground for research. This is backed up by close ties to the scientific and business com- munities at home and abroad, as well as an innovation-friendly industrial environment. TU Graz plays a significant and leading role in COMET, an extensive Austrian research programme – this is reflected in the various research centres focusing on a range of topics at the university’s campus. On the international stage, TU Graz researchers are involved in approximately 60 EU H2020 projects (including seven ERC grants). A string of successful start-ups and spin-offs point to TU Graz’s long tradi- tion of entrepreneurship which has helped to create more than 3,000 highly specialised jobs over the past 20 years.
