Activating and inspiring stories are to emanate from the worldwide network of around 900 UNESCO Chairs and partners. Each individual UNESCO Chair follows a work plan that is evaluated every four years. In addition, chairholders submit activity reports to UNESCO every second year. The Chair at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences was established in summer 2020. Now it's time to review and discuss the activities to date. For this reason, Michael Jungmeier presents the results of research, teaching and international cooperation in the Faculty of Engineering & IT, the home department of our UNESCO Chair.
