Research core areas
Fields of strength at university are bundled across the faculties by way of academic research core areas. In this way, close cooperation is fostered - especially in the field of humanities, social and cultural sciences. The University of Graz strives to concentrate existing highly socially relevant disciplinary focuses at faculty level in university research core areas.
The University of Graz pursues a strategy of optimising its potential by cooperating with other universities in the region and uses synergy effects resulting from the concentration of resources and skills. Our research target is geared towards common fields of research - especially with Graz University of Technology and the Medical University of Graz - in order to achieve a critical mass.
Our current interuniversity cooperation NAWI and prospective cooperation BIOTECHMED are essential for Graz as a scientific hub. An important aspect of this development are the harmonised research core areas of the participating universities in relation to their locations.
