Research & Technology House

The Research & Technology House provides scientists at TU Graz with services focussed on research. It provides support for projects all the way from the idea, to project planning, to the application and offer stage (pre-award), providing support at the start and during the implementation phase (post-award), all the way to project completion and the utilisation of research results and technologies. Acting as an interface to businesses and other research institutions, it supports all forms of modern knowledge and technology transfer.

The Research & Technology House provides TU Graz researchers with a comprehensive selection of services, see Services for Researchers.  

Companies can find out about possibilities for cooperation on the pages Research and Business.

Graduates of TU Graz and students in higher semesters can look up job vacancies in technology and the natural sciences on the  Career Info-Service pages.
