Land of Research

 

University ViennaUniversity GrazUniversity Salzburg

 

Quantum physics and molecular biology, applied mathematics and sustainability research, visualisation and materials technologies: The outstanding achievements of researchers across a broad spectrum of disciplines prove that Austria is a land of research and technology development that has earned a place among the European front-runners.

  • The lithium atoms that had been melted to form a giant molecule remained in the aggregate state of a Bose-Einstein condensate for a whole 20 seconds: a global sensation in quantum physics – and it took place at an institute in Innsbruck.
  • On the basis of Kurt Gödel’s sobering insight into the incompleteness of mathematics, researchers are working at the limits of logic seeking new axioms that could contribute to solving at least all meaningful mathematical questions – and they are doing this work at the University of Vienna.
  • At the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004 a new method of analysis that detects the performance-enhancing hormone EPO was used – a method developed in laboratories in Seibersdorf.
  •  And over half the mobile telephones in use throughout the world are fitted with mini-loudspeakers that come from the Vienna-based development department of a multinational corporation.

These four examples of cutting-edge research and technology development from Austria stand for a plethora of outstanding achievements in a wide range of disciplines and research areas: from research into the ageing process to quantum physics, from nanotechnologies to cell analysis. Austria is a land of research and technology development. It is a country that also owes its prosperity and leading economic position among the industrialised nations to its achievements in science and research, its innovative capability and its technological know-how.
