The Austrian COMET competence centres programme and its previous programmes have been critical for this development.

The shareholdings are an important pillar of TU Graz in its cooperation with industry and other scientific institutions.

TU Graz has purposefully allocated the portfolio companies to the five research areas of TU Graz - the 5 Fields of Expertise. This means that additional personnel, expertise and research infrastructure can be tapped at the location via the associated companies and used for close cooperation with the institutes of TU Graz.
