film and panels.

Innsbruck and surrounding area
Interview with Dr. Sara Matt, head of the Transfer Office, University Innsbruck
The University of Innsbruck has experienced and helped shape over 350 years of eventful history and the Transfer Office “Science-Business-Society” fits perfectly into this tradition: Something relatively new, open-minded and practical.
But what exactly is the Transfer Office?
The Transfer Office sees itself as an open door to the university, as a link to an incredible knowledge pool of almost 3,500 researchers. There are also numerous highly motivated, experienced and enter- prising people in the non-scientific area who want to advance the university and our region. It is our goal to bring together the best minds for a good project and support them in the best possible way – and sometimes we also like to be part of the implementation team.
Can anyone turn to the Transfer Office in order to participate and make use of it?
Yes exactly, anyone can contact us. University employees if they are looking for contact with the outside world, but especially interested and motivated people from the „outside“ who want to put together something cool with us, the university.
A “Philosophical City Walk”, a “Science Waltz” and a “Guided Tour of the Wild Bee Exhibition” will take you into the realm of scientific observations of our world.
It’s almost as if nature film provokes the viewer to dare a more analytical and profound contemplation. SCIENCE GLIMPSES is the scientific perspective on the contents of selected works, a very special view indeed, of competent scientists from the University of Innsbruck.
IN THE CINEMA
The University of Innsbruck also accompanies the International Nature Festival at all our Tyrol-wide events, happenings and festivals, and always with us are Gerda Gelse and Willi Virus!
What does Gerda Gelse need people’s blood for? How fast does Willi Virus fly through the air? Professor Cordula and Doctor Herbert will try and solve these riddles and more.
Axel Blaas and Ulrike Pfeiffenberger from the Jungen University of Innsbruck will tell you all about the science of gnats and viruses in an exciting and funny way. Atchoo!
