Space for the Best!
The following general university research priorities have been defined at the JKU:
- Digital Transformation: This field focuses on digitization as a malleable process with comprehensive technological, social and economic conditions, and impacting features.
- Sustainable Development: Responsible Technologies & Management: The goal is to pool existing and broadly-based but fragmented research activities to include various areas of sustainable development and continue to strengthen them.
- Transformation in Finance and Financial Institutions: In lieu of FinTech, the financial sector is currently experiencing a fundamental period of transition that includes all new risks and constantly changing legal terms and conditions. The challenges involved can only be mastered by applying an interdisciplinary approach.
We conduct high quality research here at an international level. And also at the recently established Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) - a center for application-oriented technological research which gives international research groups a place to network and establish themselves. And enjoy first-rate conditions. The JKU - space for the best.
Space for Quality.
Assessing the quality of scientific achievement and performance isn't easy. To ensure high quality, the JKU adheres to several generally accepted guidelines and takes various measures:
- Commitment to the European Charta for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for their Recruitment
- Guidelines to Safeguard Good Scientific Practices
- Ombudsoffice to Safeguard Good Scientific Practice
- Acquiring international evaluators to review subject areas, institutes, research projects, project applications, publications
- Taking part in international rankings
Many prestigious scientific and academic awards have been presented to JKU researchers. We have a variety of collaborations with other research institutions and business partners around the globe. We have many diverse, successful patent applications. All of this shows that the JKU research is high quality research.
