WELCOME TO THE PARIS LODRON UNIVERSITY OF SALZBURG!
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
As Rector of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, I bid you a very warm welcome. Salzburg, because of its beautiful scenery, many historical sites and the Festival, is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the world. And Salzburg is a university town with a long tradition. The University of Salzburg was founded by Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron, the namesake of the University, in 1622. Today it consists of four faculties, with approximately 18,000 students and 2,800 employees. It is a centre for innovative research and is firmly integrated into the cultural and economic life of Salzburg. With its national and international networking, it is a modern knowledge hub in the heart of Europe. We can be proud of this university, which seamlessly embeds itself with its architecturally interesting buildings in the beautiful ambience of this city. The University of Salzburg offers students a broad range of courses with a balanced ratio of teachers to students. The positioning of the University of Salzburg for a secure future is particularly close to my heart. It has set itself clear research priorities, created a development plan for the future, and today is characterized by constantly developing and meeting new challenges.
Heinrich Schmidinger, Rector of the University of Salzburg
WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS OF MATERIALS AT THE PARIS-LODRON UNIVERSITY SALZBURG
Technologies that address current global challenges rely heavily on materials development. Improving today’s materials as well as designing the next generation of materials requires profound knowledge and skills in the natural sciences. The Department of Chemistry and Physics of Materials capitalizes on its interdisciplinary access which involves the disciplines chemistry, physics, materials science and mineralogy and which addresses the design and development of inorganic materials, nanomaterials and hybrids as well as functional interfaces derived therefrom.
We aim at a perfect research environment to perform materials chemistry and physics at the highest possible level and to create an attractive and international competitive atmosphere for researchers at all stages of their career, MSc and PhD students to postdocs and junior group leaders.
