The university’s research performance has been recognised at a national and international level. Its projects are an important source of impetus for Carinthia as a financial location. One of the university’s key strengths is the diversity of knowledge, methods and disciplines with which scientists approach research issues: it also undertakes a broad spectrum of exceptional subject and faculty-specific research work.

Excellent research and the required framework conditions are a fundamental pre-requisite of this.
