For his pioneering research in the field of cross-laminated timber, Gerhard Schickhofer, head of the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology of TU Graz, has been awarded the 2019 Marcus Wallenberg Prize. The award is worth some 200,000 euros.
The aim of the new CD Laboratory, a joint project between TU Graz and Mechatronics Systems – an SME from Styria, is to make use of electrical energy in auxiliary drives and household appliances as efficiently as possible.
The Fields of Expertise provide a platform for networking and multidisciplinary scientific research. In this unique space I meet passionate scientists from different institutes and faculties who share their knowledge, discuss ideas and methodologies, and create innovative technological solutions. It is fascinating to see what is possible. The total is greater than the sum of its parts!
Since 2015, TU Graz has awarded special funding for multidisciplinary lead projects. By supporting such basic research projects, outstanding areas of top research are further developed and the research profile of TU Graz is enhanced.
