The Austrian National Committee for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics is affiliated to the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW, www.oeaw.ac.at) and the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM, iutam.org). It is intended as a networking platform for the university research activities in this scientific field. The members of the National Committee are professors from TU Wien, TU Graz, MU Leoben, JKU Linz and Universität Innsbruck.
The National Committee meets once a year to coordinate national and international activities and to offer young researchers a platform for scientific exchange.
According to the locations of the universities, where theoretical and applied mechanics are represented in teaching and research, there are four sections:
- Vienna (TU Wien: www.tuwien.ac.at)
- Styria (TU Graz: www.tugraz.at; MU Leoben: www.unileoben.ac.at)
- Upper Austria (JKU Linz: www.jku.at)
- Tyrol (Universität Innsbruck: www.uibk.ac.at)
