TU Wien’s mission statement is “Technology for people”. It stands for academic excellence through research and competence through teaching. Austria’s largest technological university comprises eight faculties and teaches over 28000 students. It covers a wide spectrum, from abstract pure research and fundamental principles of science, to applied technological research and partnership with industry. Linking both, theory and application, adds value to both research and teaching.

TU Wien is committed to state-of-the-art handling and management of research data and recognizes that research data have a long-term value for research, academia and industry, with the potential for widespread use in society. In order to support researchers in integrating Open Science and FAIR practices into their research activities, TU Wien established a Center for Research Data Management and offers a Data Stewardship course to students of Data Science Master.
