2021: Climate and Energy

Science shapes the future. At the annual interdisciplinary science day TU Graz – Science for Future, researchers from TU Graz demonstrate how they are stepping up to meet societal challenges in all disciplines with innovative technologies and helping to shape our future.

Edition 1 of the TU Graz Science for Future event that will be held in autumn 2021 is dedicated to a topic vital to our future: climate and energy. Scientists from all five key research areas at TU Graz – the Fields of Expertise – will discuss these topics in the context of their field of activity, present new interdisciplinary research approaches and discuss these new technologies with our guests from science, industry and society.

In addition to excellent keynote speeches, you can expect a mix of workshops and lectures, a panel discussion and an accompanying poster exhibition. The event also offers ample opportunity for professional exchange and networking. This day offers another highlight: the award ceremony for the research photo competition TU Graz SciPix – Research in Focus.
