Mission: the University of Graz regards itself as an international institution for education and research committed to research and teaching for the benefit of society. It is our policy to maintain freedom in research and teaching, which permanently commits us to social, political and technological developments. Increasing flexibilisation and globalisation are the essential frame conditions. Besides our ambition to create profile and visibility in a European and global context, it is above all one of our most outstanding characteristics that our university has acquired a special position in the south-eastern European region.
