Austria’s joining the European Union has brought an additional focus to the LKT’s activities.

Together with international partners, various projects in the fields of vocational training (Leonardo), students’ exchange (Leonardo, Socrates), sustainable development, surveys and studies (Leonardo) and research and development (e.g. Brite Euram) have been carried out. In this respect the LKT has again a very close connection to the TGM and its students.

With over eleven years of experience in European project, the LKT now has a solid partner base (its own network) throughout Europe and further a field, participates actively in a number of international symposia on sustainable development, tourism, cleaner consumption and production, hazardous waste treatment and regional development.

Never forgetting the element of learning, the LKT with its partners has established a number of training courses of European dimension, both on-line and using more traditional face to face training methods.
