  1.  Research @ Klagenfurt University is…
    A lot of fun. Surprisingly, it is much more about people than about technology and mathematics…

    Meetings with colleagues, courses, reading and writing. And watching the mountains through my window.

    Bureaucracy
  4. The most important thing that students have to learn is…

    today in the morning a short chat with my secretary.
  6. Thinking about the future I…
    …despare often. At other times I hope. Anyway, future must be invented, it must be essentially different from what we know – otherwise it is just extrapolated past.

    …searching for the sense of life.
