Exhibition Wunderkammer 2015 Celebrating 200 Years TU Vienna

The Exhibition

TU Vienna celebrated its 200th anniversary on November 6, 2015. To mark the occasion, the exhibition Wunderkammer 2015 was open to the public in TU Vienna's main building in November 2015. Its topic was What's Next?, bringing together science, technology, and art and familiarizing the general public with new developments. About 100 submissions were received by the organizers of Wunderkammer 2015, and about 30 were selected by a jury of experts. My group presented an overview of our work.

The Presentation

In addition to actual nanowire gas sensors and posters, we showed this presentation (in German). Special thanks to Benjamin Stadlbauer for preparing the presentation with nice animations and many explanations.

The presentation can be viewed here as a movie file. You can view it full-screen by clicking on the “enlarge” button; the movie file is 1920×1080.

Press and TV Coverage

This article, Neue Wunderwelten, reports from the exhibition and mentions us. Further articles are here and here.

ORF, Austria's largest TV station, reported about the opening of the exhibition. Visitors in front of our booth are shown here.
