  • News
    Geologists from the University of Salzburg are greatly benefiting from the recently concluded science agreement between Iran and Austria. At least three new cooperation projects are planned. The expertise of the Salzburg geologists in finding gold or rare earths is, for example, very much in demand in Iran. Rare earths are among the most coveted raw materials in the world.
    Thanks to a generous legacy by Kurt Zopf, the University of Salzburg awards the Kurt-Zopf Prize, which is endowed with 10,000 euros, for habilitated members of organizational units of the university, which cover the areas of humanities, cultural and / or social science, jurisprudence or theology.
    From now until 3 July, it is possible to register for the "ditact_women's IT summer school" of the University of Salzburg . It takes place from 21 August to 2 September at the Unipark Nonntal and at the Fachhochschule Salzburg: http://www.ditact.ac.at.
