Scientific Service Units

Eight facilities provide research infrastructure on campus.

Scientific Service Units

The Scientific Service Units (SSUs) are one of Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA)´s strategic key factors. These facilities pool scientific infrastructure used by more than one research group to avoid a duplication of efforts and expenses. Their cutting-edge equipment and expert services allow scientists to perform research at an internationally competitive level.

Over the years, the Scientific Service Units grew up to more than 110 employees in nine facilities. In order to meet the needs of existing research groups and to support the start-up of new faculty members, they always strive to adapt and expand their services. Constant learning ensures that they provide excellent know-how for world-class research.

The Scientific Service Units act as an interdisciplinary platform that, in accordance with the mission statement, maximizes the sharing of equipment among multiple research groups.
