How do we want to plan cities in the future – and how will we have to? High-profile experts will discuss potential answers at Territorial Turn!, a symposium taking place at TU Graz on 15-16 September. Some tickets are still available, with discounts on offer for students.
Alexander Passer is the new Professor of Sustainable Construction at TU Graz. The focus is on life-cycle-based sustainability assessment and low-emission, climate-robust construction methods. The professorship is endowed by the Trade Association of the Stone and Ceramics Industry.
TU Darmstadt and TU Graz want to decisively improve electrical machines through computer simulations. The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Austrian Science Fund FWF are funding the project with more than eight million euros.
René Rieberer has been a researcher at TU Graz since 1996 and is involved in environmentally friendly heating technology. But it’s not just in research that everything revolves around this; he also monitors his private Heating and ventilation system with all kinds of measurement technology.
The Stones and Ceramics Association supports endowed professorship for sustainable construction at TU Graz with a focus on lifecycle-based sustainability assessment as well as greenhouse gas-free and climate-robust construction projects. The appointment will take place in the summer of 2021.
Research association led by TU Graz wants to use the heat contained in the discharged tunnel water to supply energy to entire city districts. As part of the FFG programme "City of the Future", a sustainable concept for the city of Innsbruck is being developed.
A project jointly initiated by the Austrian Society for Construction Technology (ÖBV), TU Graz and OTH Regensburg provides a more systematic understanding of shotcrete applications and forms the basis for new, even more durable concrete mixes and thus for more durable tunnels.
TU Graz, ams and Silicon Austria Labs has developed a compact and energy-efficient sensor for mobile devices, which informs users in real time about the fine dust content in the air and warns them in case of elevated values.
Together with international partners, researchers at Graz University of Technology have developed a measurement method that measures particles below 10 nanometres for the first time and will contribute to the implementation of future, stricter emission standards.
The effects of climate change are becoming increasingly noticeable and therefore a transformation of our energy system is becoming more and more urgent. The fight against climate change is a global challenge and the electricity sector plays a key role in this transformation process. The shift from…
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles. that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
