Academic Programme

Building innovation and technical capacities of universities

University of the Future

Internet Institut Wien Academic Programme is an international framework programme for building the capacities of academic institutions and education professionals. The strategic focus of AP is on RTI (research, technology, and innovation) areas, but not limited.

Implementation of the programme is done through the three activity pillars: raising awareness, professional networking, and knowledge/technology transfer. IIW Academic Programme is open to all academic institutions and education professionals worldwide who actively promote values like ethics, academic excellence, and high professional standards.

Academic Programme

As a non-profit Think Tank, Internet Institut Wien also vigorously promotes networking and collaboration of non-profit organisations with academic institutions through our Academic Programme. The such partnership aims to create new preconditions for cooperation on various research and innovation topics and issues of high importance to the academic world.
