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 in which two key research strengths and four initiatives in multi-disciplinary research partnerships have been established. This structure is also deeply embedded in the design of the AAU site.
The Karl Popper Kolleg (KPK) is a research and doctoral institute founded by Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt in 2015. The links between KPK and AAU enable promising young researchers to collaborate in the long term with international researchers at the very cutting edge of their fields (scientists in residence).
Framework conditions for research
AAU offers guidance to staff on how to make their research available through “open access”.
