TU Graz has divided its research into five innovative areas – the Fields of Expertise. Researchers work together in an interdisciplinary manner, profiting from different approaches and methods, sharing resources and benefiting from international exchange. TU Graz has strengthened the Fields of Expertise by appointing new professors, cooperating with scientific partner institutions and investing in selected interdisciplinary projects. The research teams focus on basic research and foster contacts with industry and commerce to enable the practical implementation of theoretical knowledge. They are in contact with scientific competence centres and are involved in research networks. Researchers in the Fields of Expertise
