New University Course - Molecular Analysis of Trophic Interactions (MATI)

In October the two-week university course named “Molecular Analysis of Trophic Interactions” starts for the first time. Participants get theoretical information and gain practical skills in the field of molecular analysis of trophic interactions. Thanks to the great number of methods applied (e.g. robotic DNA extraction,   high-resolution capillary electrophoresis, multiplex PCR or Next-Generation-Sequencing) the university course attracts young scientists from the USA, China, Chile and the European countries.


Continuing Education at Forum Alpbach

This year the university course “European Community Law” in cooperation with the European Forum Alpbach took place for the first time within the scope of the “Alpbach Summer School on European Integration”. This university course deals with the major elements of the institutional and material community law as well as its relations to international law, most importantly international economic law and national law of the member states, with the example of Austria.


Commencement Ceremony Restoring of Historic Stoves

On 9 September 2014 the certificates for the university course “Restoring of Historic Tiled Stoves” were awarded in the assembly hall of the University of Innsbruck. Over a period of three semesters master stove-fitters and ceramists as well as students of Art History and Archaeology were able to profit from their different practical and theoretical knowledge on professional restoring of historic stoves. Up to then no suitable further education was available in this area, neither for students nor practical experts, and this makes this university course unique.


Commencement Ceremony Business Law

In November again 11 participants conclude the university course of “Business Law – Corporate and Contract Law” with a Master title. The four-semester course conveys knowledge and competences that go beyond the diploma programme of Law and which have become essential with regard to the requirements of modern practice.

The university course “Intervention and Counselling for Sexual Issues” concludes with 17 successful graduates this semester. This university course is a scientific education offer for psychologists, medical practitioners, pedagogues and social workers. Graduates should be able to deal with questions relating to human sexuality in a professional way. This university course is offered again starting from autumn 2015.
