Summer Research: University of Graz

Graz, an European cultural capital, is an important gateway to neighboring countries and foremost South-Eastern Europe because of its geographical situation (2 hrs to Vienna, 1 hr to Maribor/Slovenia, 4 hrs to Venice). The variety of the cultural scene is strongly influenced by the almost 50.000 students who come here to live and learn at one of the four universities.
