Research and Teaching
Explore, develop, improve.
The IT requirements for research, teaching and administration are in a constant state of change. Research-related IT services in particular must adapt to the multifaceted needs of the scientific community. As an academic computing center, the URZ anticipates these trends and develops innovative and sustainable IT solutions in cooperation with the relevant target groups. Moreover, experts at the URZ continuously work to optimize existing services and infrastructure, such as in regard to energy efficiency and environmental impact.
As an academic computing center, the URZ is constantly experimenting with and developing new technologies and services for research and teaching. This innovation work is implemented within a framework of various projects, which are conducted in cooperation with other facilities and research partners.
