Research and innovation

Bringing together solid basic research with scientific engineering work across various disciplines on the one hand and project collaboration with other universities, research institutes and businesses on the other, enables the university to conduct development work in almost all fields of technology.


TU Wien provides its scientists with a research environment that promotes high-quality fundamental and application-oriented research in equal measure, and therefore forms the cornerstones of a modern university; research, teaching and innovation.

It is essential to have supporters who are as passionate about scientific progress as TU Wien if these quality standards are to be maintained in the future.

Endowed professorships and chairs

If your company would like the opportunity to support a specialist subject area that is of particular interest to you, endowed professorships or chairs offer an appropriate way of doing so.

TU Wien conceptually defines and develops the professorial profile and handles the advertising, application and recruitment processes. The supporter does not influence these proceedings.
