JKU's Duties and Responsibilities

Duties and responsibilities at the Johannes Kepler University are divided into five areas:

  • Science and Research
  • Education
  • Internationalization
  • Management Offensive
  • Accountability to Society


Research and teaching are strongly linked at all four faculties (Faculty of Social Sciences, Economics and Business, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Medicine). Collaboration between the faculties supports the development of cross-faculty, interdisciplinary academic degree programs.


In addition to targeted cooperation agreements with universities abroad, the JKU actively supports and encourages the exchange of faculty and students. Our highly regarded international appeal to researchers, educators and students as well as the integration of the international scientific community have made JKU a “global gateway”.

JKU continues to intensify its contact to official sectors and businesses, continually commits itself to societal accountability and takes an increasing number of public positions on current topics in affecting society today. The JKU has succeeded to position itself as a research university with a respected international reputation.
