International cooperations

A fundamental indicator for the competitiveness and the transdisciplinary development of the sciences and arts is the active integration of academic staff and students in international partnerships and networks. They are appropriately supplemented through the Faculty’s active membership in European and international associations.

The pulsating link-up of research and studies is seen as impetus but also as primary challenge. New research results therefore flow at an early stage into the Faculty curriculum, students take an active part in the research process. The international cooperation agreements include all fields of work: teaching, studies and research. The intense growth and the extension of the scientific mesh of relationships is therefore a special item on the agenda of the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at the TU Wien.

The Faculty has drawn up bilateral agreements of partnership with various international universities for collaboration in research and studies. Among the most important connections are existing cooperative ventures especially with universities in Chinese, Southeast Asian and Ukrainian regions, alliances with extra-mural research institutes (e.g. Holzforschung Austria, Arsenal Research, etc.), collaboration with partners from industry and inner-university projects of the TU Wien.
