+++ Oikos Talks +++
Have you ever thought about what your phone has to do with climate change?
Sadly, everyday tech products, such as phones or computers contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, resource overuse and the electronic waste problem. This makes them an important part to consider when working on the mitigation of these issues. Despite the size of these difficulties, most people have rarely thought about what they can contribute to bring a change to this situation.
But there are things that you can do!
Buying eco-friendly produced or refurbished products, letting them be repaired or avoiding electronic waste where possible are easy and comfortable ways to live more sustainably!
You want to know more about the topic? Then join us for our online oikos Talk #2: Tech products & sustainability!
We invited experts from research and industry who are dealing with the issue on a daily basis to join our panel of speakers. We are going to discuss concrete ways to lower the negative consequences of our tech products, to find out more about the impact of tech products on the environment in general and what needs to be done to transform the industry.
When? March 30, 7 pm
Where? Your living room – join us online via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/2032032203
The talk will be held in English entirely.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Have you been thinking about going abroad as part of your studies for some time now? Do you keep asking yourself the following questions: Where? When? For how long? What opportunities are there at all?
During the International Days 2021 from Tuesday, 19 October to Thursday, 21 October at Graz University of Technology, there will be various opportunities to get information, ask open questions and network with students who are currently doing a semester abroad or are doing their exchange at Graz University of Technology.
What is it like doing a PhD? How can one stay motivated and focussed even when everything seems to go wrong? How many publications do I have to write and how can I be paid for my work? These and many other pressing questions were answered during “Meeting Point Dissertation” on September the 29th, which was attended by 140 PhDs – in person and virtually. We were blown away by the great discussion we had and the amount of relevant information which was packed into each presentation! We thank all the speakers, especially former PhDs Christian Knoll and Gundelinde Wiegel for sharing their life experience with us and for patiently answering a ton of questions! Another big thank you goes out to the Human Resource Development Department for organising this smooth event with our support!
