Over the next few years, work will be carried out at TU Graz on cell factories for industrial algae biotechnology, on a rapid prototyping approach for micro- and nanodevices and on new paradigms for ultra-fast information processing.
Researchers from TU Graz and Ruhr University Bochum show in the journal ACS Catalysis how the catalytic activity of cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, can be significantly increased. This brings biotechnological and thus eco-friendly application a big step closer.
A technology developed at Graz University of Technology uses LED instead of laser sources for the additive manufacturing of metal parts and optimizes 3D metal printing in terms of construction time, metal powder consumption, equipment costs and post-processing effort.
Researchers from Graz, Austria, are developing a ground-breaking method that uses biomarkers to detect sepsis 2 to 3 days before the first clinical symptoms appear. This can significantly increase the chances of survival in cases of blood poisoning by bacteria or fungi.
Satellite images from the BRITE mission with the participation of researchers from TU Graz and the Universities of Innsbruck and Vienna document for the first time the complete development of a nova – from eruption to maximum brightness and burn out. The publication has now appeared in the journal...
Researchers at Graz University of Technology have successfully tested a cost-effective and fully automated pollen sensor prototype and are now making their knowledge freely available and usable for everyone.
Water is all around us and essential for life. Nevertheless, research into its behaviour at the atomic level – above all how it interacts with surfaces – is thin on the ground. Thanks to a new experimental method, TU Graz researchers have now delivered insights into the atomic-level movement of...
TU Graz and Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) launch the first SAL research labs at an Austrian university and lay the foundation for groundbreaking digital products and processes with joint basic research in the field of electronics-based systems.
At the beginning of 2019, an international research team led by Daniel Gruss, Michael Schwarz and Moritz Lipp from TU Graz discovered the processor loophole ZombieLoad. Since then there has been a software patch and new processors. But with a new variant of the old attack these are no longer safe...
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 great challenges of our time, such as digitalisation, sustainability or pandemics can hardly be solved by individual researchers working on their own, but require critical masses and interdisciplinary cooperation. The Fields of Expertise of TU Graz are the ideal platform for this – researchers collaborate in an interdisciplinary way and are supported by funding.
The Field of Expertise Advanced Material Science is a dynamic mix of science, communication, ideas, opportunities. It is interesting to see the great variety of research on advanced materials that is carried out at our university! The goal is to connect such variety like different pieces of a single puzzle.
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.
