The Austrian Tribology Society


Organisation of conferences and seminars on industrial tribology, such as the annual symposia, international expert conferences and the “Tribo-Forum” (multiple meetings per year for interested people in industry).


Public relations efforts that raise awareness in industry (and public institutions) towards applying “tribotechnology” (preventative measures, targeted material selection, surface technologies, lubricant selection, maintenance,..) together with friction and wear.


Supporting teaching and (further) education, as well as scientific communication, in tribology; integrating tribology at universities and universities of applied sciences (German: “Fachhochschulen”), such as the area of concentration “surface technology and tribology” in the master programme “mechatronics” at the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt) in order to train “real” tribologists.
