Possibilities for co-operations with TU Wien
We support co-operation between TU Wien and companies in the initiation and application phase by helping in the search for suitable co-operation partners and providing advice on relevant initiation financing. These activities are supported by the co-operation agreement with the Vienna Economic Chambers.
The following possibilities for cooperation are available:
Research co-operation indicates a research project carried out jointly in a consortium (e.g. companies, public authorities, other universities, non-university research institutions) with the support of a public funding. The research project is open with regard to the results, the rights to the research results are reserved by all partners, and the exploitation and use of the results is regulated in the consortium agreement. The University has a right to publish.
Contract research is the implementation of scientific work on behalf of a (commercial) funding source. The objective and purpose of the commissioned investigations are predefined by the client. For a remuneration of the full costs of the commissioned research activity, the IPRs of the research results and their exploitation are reserved by the client.
Co-operation in industry-based theses offers a special opportunity to combine science and business in practice to the benefit of both parties. Application-oriented research is enabled and current practical problems can be solved. Candidates writing such a thesis have an academic supervisor at the university and a contact partner in the enterprise involved, who make their resources available to answer specific questions. The topic is defined jointly, however, the actual approval lies in the university’s responsibility. Please note that the framework conditions for carrying out such work may vary between single faculties (e.g. guideline by the Faculty of Informatics).
At TU Wien, there are core facilities in which research infrastructures are pooled. Here, interdisciplinary co-operation at the university and also between individual universities is supported and strengthened. Companies can also buy scientific services offered at these centres, if resources are available.
The TU Wien X-ray Centre enables X-ray structure data collection, structure solutions and refinements of data sets in the single crystal domain. In addition, qualitative and quantitative phase analytics can be carried out for polycrystalline materials. Voltage measurements and texture measurements are offered for bulk samples, as well as for thin films.
The expertise and infrastructure of USTEM are available to research institutions and companies to carry out research and development work for quality control or damage analysis. With transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), confocal microscopy and focused ion beam (FIB), USTEM offers a wide range of services in the field of structural and chemical microanalysis.
The ZMNS offers state-of-the-art environment and equipment to enable the development of new semiconductor components in research and teaching. The main objective of the research and development activities is the transfer of innovative ideas from basic research into novel device concepts, which is also achieved through close co-operation with the industry and international research institutions.
