SGS and TU Graz open Lamarr Security Research
Cybersecurity is one of the biggest challenges for our information society and there is urgent need to fundamentally rethink the way systems are built, composed and analyzed. In order to enable trust and to create a world where data security and privacy are a matter of course, it is necessary to perform open research on novel technologies. Non-profit Lamarr Security Research is the new centerpiece of the international Cybersecurity Campus Graz, opened by SGS and TU Graz in 2019. Research results will become available to all, bringing high value to society.

Key Competencies Certificate "Entrepreneurship – Entrepreneurial Acting and Thinking"
Basic (16 ECTS) and Advanced (16 ECTS)
Starting in winter semester 2020/21, there is a way to prove key competencies by Certificates issued by Graz University of Technology - for example, by the structured use of course offerings around the topic of entrepreneurship. In a good mixture of theory and practical offers you will gain valuable experience for initiating, designing and implementing your own (start-up) projects.  If you have been interested in the topic for some time, you may already have completed some of the courses anyway - then there is not much missing to obtain the certificate and it is especially worth looking at the list!
