Locations

Campus Pinkafeld, University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Burgenland.

Pinkafeld is located in the southwest of the province of Burgenland (Austria), only about 100 kilometers south of Vienna. Pinkafeld is nestled in the heart of Burgenland’s spa region, a region characterized by gently rolling hills and the foothills of the Wechsel mountains.

Pinkafeld is a typical rural school and university location; it has approximately 5700 inhabitants, the campus of UAS Burgenland already hosts 900 students. As such, it has gained supra-regional importance and reputation as a high-quality training location and science hub in the field of energy, environmental and building technology.

Visiting professors will find excellent accommodation in the immediate vicinity of the University of Applied Sciences at reasonable rent levels. Due to the proximity to Vienna daily commuting between Vienna and Pinkafeld would be possible. An express bus line and a highway connect the two cities directly. Since there are also inexpensive overnight accommodation possibilities in Pinkafeld (bookable for single nights in a student residence or hotel), a combination of both variants would be possible

Specializations

Sustainability is the overriding focus of the research activities of the Department of Energy and Environmental Management. On this basis, grant activities can be twofold: On the one hand, they may relate to the area of sustainable buildings or, on the other, to the area of sustainable energy supply for rural regions. Both topics are not only understood in technical terms but also include social and economic issues in a genuinely interdisciplinary approach.

Sustainable buildings grant activities can evolve towards both high-tech buildings and low-tech buildings.Ideally, the activities in the field of energy supply are related to the topics of solar energy and wind energy, including the associated issues of energy storage and the topic of hydrogen as an energy carrier.
