NAWI Graz Geocenter

Unique in Austria: Institutes of TU Graz and Uni Graz will cooperate much closer within the framework of the NAWI Graz Geocenter. The center’s objectives are to make best possible use of synergies and to further develop its disciplines jointly.
The NAWI Graz Geocenter’s institutes have initiated this step on their own as a logical consequence of their long-term cooperation. Uni Graz and TU Graz have both very welcomed this development and have supported this proposal. The funding declaration has been signed in December 2015.

At present, the following institutes are part of the NAWI Graz Geocenter:

  • Institute of Applied Geosciences (TU Graz, two disciplines)
  • Institute of Rock Mechanics and Tunnelling (TU Graz)
  • Institute of Institute of Soil Mechanics, Foundation Engineering and Computational Geotechnics (TU Graz) and
  • Institute of Earth Sciences (Uni Graz, four disciplines)

This means in effect that following disciplines are bundled within the NAWI Graz Geocenter:

  • Mineralogy & Hydrogeochemistry: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Martin Dietzel
  • Engineering Geology: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Daniel Scott Kieffer
  • Soil Mechanics, Foundation Engineering and Computational Geotechnics: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Roman Marte
  • Rock Mechanics and Tunnelling: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Marcher
  • Hydrogeology: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Steffen Birk
  • Petrology und Geochemistry: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Hauzenberger
  • Geology: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Walter Kurz
  • Palaeontology und Stratigraphy: Ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Bernhard Hubmann (interim.)
