In Focus: Research & Knowledge and Technology Transfer

Being a general university, the University of Salzburg is characterized by a large variety of scientific disciplines and a wide scope of teaching and research. On the one hand, the university’s research profile is defined by the focus areas and centres. On the other hand, excellent research is carried out at the departments and at the school of education as well. Academics pursue their research from a cross-disciplinary point of view and they aim to build bridges between science and industry. This is accomplished not only by collaborating and exchanging with international colleagues, but also by cooperating with a large number of businesses of every size on a regional, national, European or international level.
