Johannes Kepler Universität Linz (AT)

Linz’s Johannes Kepler University’s faculty includes outstanding research scientists whose work is quoted in some of the most highly respected scientific journals worldwide but who are hardly known in their own homeland, Austria. So who are these brilliant young Upper Austrian scientists and what exactly are they doing research on?

In cooperation with Johannes Kepler University, we launch Next Generation JKU—a series of talks to give outstanding young scholars working in engineering and science the opportunity to utilize the cutting-edge technology available in Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center to present their research.
