Can concrete float? How transparent are humans from the point of view of medicine? And who is visiting the icy moons of Jupiter? Questions upon questions, whose answers are being intensively researched throughout Austria. The Long Night of Research is on 22 April in all the federal states and will give everyone the opportunity to experience research close up. TU Graz is also participating in the biggest research event in Austria with 28 locations. The aim is to present science in an exciting and easily comprehensible way which is not short on fun and entertainment. Rector Harald Kainz: “We would like to welcome all those interested along with their families to TU Graz, and we will take them on a journey through the fascinating world of science, technology and research. Watch our researchers at work and prepare to be amazed.”
Aha experience guarantee
The 28 locations on the Neue Technik campus in Stremayrgasse, Steyrergasse and Petersgasse give insights into the colourful world of science at TU Graz. The journey ranges from the micro and nano worlds via biomechanics and rescue robotics to satellite research and the factory of tomorrow. All five strategic research areas of TU Graz – the so-called Fields of Expertise – are represented in the programme. Beside Magna and the Virtual Vehicle research centre, the student racing team “TERA TU Graz” will also present itself with its energy-efficient fast cars in the specially built technology park.
A to B conveniently
Holding Graz bus lines are supporting the Long Night of Research. Starting at 4:30pm, five bus routes will leave Jakominiplatz at 15-minute intervals for the individual research locations. With the “C-Line” and the “Technik-Line” you can conveniently travel to all the research locations of TU Graz. And because being astonished is hungry work, the “Mia&Mason” canteen in Stremayrgasse 16 is open till 11pm (with café on the ground floor and restaurant on the top floor).
