Campus 4.0 Association - An Association to Support Campus Culture.

The Johannes Kepler University was built around the university pond. Just a little over 50 years later, the JKU Campus 4.0 Association built a structure on the pond: a 'floating' venue, the JKU TeichWerk.

The new, welcoming 400 m² space invites students, employees, and guests at the JKU to come together and take a break. The venue features a bar, a coffee house, a stage, and serves as a think-tank and event location.

The association aims to support academia, science, education, and the arts at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz.

As part of the association’s efforts to boost and enhance campus culture, the TeichWerk also hosts events in cooperation with, among others, the Kepler Society and the Circus of Knowledge.
