Johannes Kepler University Linz

Johannes Kepler University Linz, founded in 1966, is with its four faculties and three schools a broad-based university with an overall focus on technology. The understanding of technology is inter- and transdisciplinary and forward-looking. It is based on a strong foundation in the fields of technology, science, economics, law and medicine that is unique in its interplay. The JKU sees itself as a regionally rooted and at the same time internationally oriented university. For its students, the JKU has often taken on a pioneering role in the past – for example, with Austria’s very first degree programmes in computer science and mechatronics – and today’s nearly 23,000 students are offered a wide range of studies at the highest level on a beautiful campus.

In addition to the excellent basic research, which has been widely acknowledged, the transfer of knowledge into business and society has been a major concern for the JKU from the outset. For example, the Institute Integriert Studieren has been carrying out citizen science projects together with non-professionals for many years, in which developments in the field of Assistive Technologies are promoted. Activities in the field of Citizen Science are constantly being expanded.
