For five years TU Darmstadt and TU Graz have been strategic partners and there is no other university partnership that has led to as much collaboration in research, teaching and university management. One of the most outstanding success stories is that of CREATOR the first German-Austrian collaborative research center. Seed funding of both universities made first meetings between the initiators of this fabulous research alliance possible. If you are interested in starting a cooperation with colleagues at TU Darmstadt there is a special funding scheme. The two universities are now also tightly linked through the European University Alliance Unite! The spirit of a strong commitment could be experienced during the first visit of the whole TU Darmstadt executive board at the beginning of June.
The first German-Austrian Collaborative Research Center/Transregio has received funding - a success story for a long-standing cooperation between TU Graz and TU Darmstadt. Annette Mütze (Head of the Electric Drives and Machines Institute at TU Graz) Martin Schanz (Head of the Institute of Applied Mechanics) and Sebastian Schöps (Head of Computational Electromagnetics at TU Darmstadt), initiators of the collaboration, have been working together for many years and have successfully used the opportunity of the special TU Graz – TU Darmstadt funding, both for research and teaching related projects.
TU Darmstadt and TU Graz will develop new models and simulation algorithms to improve electrical machines, for example for e-mobility. The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) jointly fund the project with a total of more than eight million euros.
The partnership between TU Graz and TU Darmstadt is quite a specific one: Scientifically on a very high level the cooperation covers many departments in both countries at both universities. Although including many researchers and staff we always feel like working with friends. The AustrianGemütlichkeit(cosy atmosphere) combined with Styria´s charm makes it easy for me to like working with our colleagues from TU Graz immensely.
Virtual Joint Lecture Series: TU Darmstadt – TU Graz
Stefan KURZ, Electromagnetism and Mathematical Modelling (M4EM) group, TU Darmstadt:
I am currently conducting a joint lecture series on Electromagnetics and Differential Forms during the Summer Term 2021 within the framework of the strategic partnership between TU Darmstadt and TU Graz. I started this endeavor 2017 in Darmstadt, with a small group of enthusiasts, as a classical black-board format.
With the help of the incentive budget I was able to evolve the lectures into an E-Learning format, including elements such as quizzes in the tool „feedbackr“. This was accomplished in close collaboration with the Institute of Applied Mathematics at TU Graz. What I like a lot about this format: it admits learning in a European network, which might even include further universities in the future. This provides a fresh spirit to Humboldt’s community of teachers and scholars - universitas magistrorum et scholarium.
