Research platforms and research networks

 

The Faculty participates in the following Research platforms

Research platforms are a successful tool for interdisciplinary research cooperation projects. The establishment of research platforms is initiated by academics and research groups of various disciplines and faculties that can submit their applications in the course of calls for proposals. The applications are evaluated by international experts.
Applications from all subject areas are taken into consideration. Research platforms address academic questions that can only be studied from an interdisciplinary perspective. Thus, the underlying goal is the promotion of especially innovative, interdisciplinary research projects. Research platforms are established for a duration of three years, which may be extended.

 

Research networks

Research networks as an instrument should be increasingly used to bring together researchers at the University of Vienna, in particular in subject areas that are relevant for society, and create a critical mass, which can be the starting point for applications for research platforms and Horizon 2020 (in line with the "major societal challenges" programme section).
