Commissioned research is accomplished either in on the basis of cooperative research projects with partners from the industry and the university or individually with private firms. Strict secrecy of the results is for us a matter of course.
If a financial promotion by the Austrian research promotion company (FFG) is desired, we coordinate the application.
For us as an institute of the University of Technology there is also the possibility of processing research topics in the context of a diploma thesis or a PhD thesis.
Apart from research and teaching we contribute with our advisory service to the solution of current problems of the paper and pulp industry and the paper-processing industry.
These advice services are a concern to all institute members. It has turned out that they form the basis for a long-term and trusting cooperation, which can lead for example to a master thesis or to new research projects.
