Research at Alpen-Adria-Universität is competitive & internationally recognized, expanding and consolidating knowledge & promoting knowledge exchange within the scientific community.

Research at AAU

Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt’s research structure is geared towards increasing the visibility and competitiveness of our research within scientific communities.

In terms of content, the research structure at AAU focuses on exchange across a broad range of specialist fields: The university’s four faculties, each incorporating a broad range of subjects, provide a framework that draws together the university’s two key research strengths, the four initiatives in multi-disciplinary research partnerships and its research-oriented teaching. This structure is also deeply embedded in the design of the AAU site. Further initiatives also have good potential to enhance the university’s profile in future.
