Christian Doppler Laboratories

The Christian Doppler Research Association (CDG) promotes cooperation between science and business. Specifically, this takes place in specially established research units with fixed terms, in which application-orientated basic research is pursued.

The following CD laboratories are currently set up at Montanuniversität Leoben:
