The appointment of new professors in many fields during the last decade has created a variety of new research activities. In the coming years, this research is to be consolidated and developed further in areas such as biomechanics (Chair of Mechanics and Robotics, Professor Andrés
Kecskeméthy), energy, mobility, water treatment, turbine machines, and nanotechnology. Modeling, simulation and the application of the most advanced experimental methods will play a key role in this context.
