The International Services have taken the opportunity of the 350th anniversary of the University of Innsbruck to draw attention to the worldwide network, which we have built with our partners.

The design project by Fabian Venier and Konstantin Jauck, students at the Universtiy of Innsbruck, emerged from an ideas competition at the Faculty of Architecture. Pharos means lighthouse in Greek and like the lighthouse of Alexandria, the youngest of the seven wonders of the ancient world, shines and signals our students the ways into the academic world. It also symbolizes a small home-port for our guest-students.

By means of analogue signposts as an interface to the digital world focuses on those partner institutions of the University of Innsbruck, with which there is a lively exchange of students and teachers. Two cubes represent the center of the earth and Innsbruck, while of the LED illuminated panels each represents a partner university of the University of Innsbruck. The length of each metal bar corresponds to the true-to-scale distance between the two universities. The lighting varies in color, depending on the current temperature at the respective location.

If the University of Innsbruck or one of the partner universities is mentioned on the social media channels Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, the corresponding panel will also light up.

So why not simply try the hashtag and see what happens?
