Nevertheless, he continues to study alongside his work. We cant't wait to see whether and how his studies of instrumental and vocal pedagogy will be reflected in his future work at the TU Wien.

As team colleagues, we can confirm that he is already able to prepare technical knowledge in a way that is understandable for non-tech people as well.

Authentication Services

Florian is not only teaching and advising, of course he is coding as well. Currently, his main topic is the connection of the Aconet Identity Federation with the authentication solution of TU Wien-services. Through such a connection, services of the TU Wien can be opened to members of other Austrian universities. This is particularly of interest for services that foster cooperation or benefit from a wider reach, such as the planned research data repository of the TU Wien. On the topic of authentication, Florian works closely with our colleagues in the digitization project Austrian Data Lab & Services, opens an external URL in a new window.
