Children and research
Research, with all its countless results and effects, is only one of many elements in our daily lives. The results of this research appear in cough medicine and mobile phones, in robust, weatherproof outdoor jackets and computers, in toy cars and real ones. Research is exciting, but can also be exhausting. Having the opportunity to discover new things and investigate all the details is always extraordinarily good fun. Studies in company such as JOANNEUM RESEARCH are carried out every single day with the aim of making life better and simpler. Technologies for transport, safety, water, energy, laser production, lighting systems and medical technology are only a few examples of our scientific work.
Providing children with insights into this work and the everyday lives of people engaged in research is vital. As the largest non-university research institute in Styria, we regard it as a highly significant responsibility to inform the general public and, in particular, children about the meaning and importance of research.
