There is a leading faculty in each field of excellence and strong vision of conducting interdisciplinary research with institutes at other faculties with strengths in related fields of excellence.

These research priorities began in a bottom-up process which combined core compentencies at the JKU with cross-institute topics at both a faculty and inter-faculty level.
