Austrian Research Association

  • Description
  • The Aus­trian Research Asso­ci­a­tion was founded in 1977 in order to pro­vide new impulses for research pro­mo­tion and sci­ence poli­cies in Aus­tria. Funded by the fed­eral and regional gov­ern­ments it con­cen­trates on ensur­ing qual­ity and future ori­en­ta­tion of research and teach­ing at insti­tu­tions for higher edu­ca­tion. The Aus­trian Resarch Asso­ci­a­tion con­sists of Aus­trian aca­d­e­mics who want to strengthen the role of sci­ence in pub­lic life and in for­mu­lat­ing sci­ence policies.

    All activ­i­ties and pro­grammes of the Asso­ci­a­tion are ini­ti­ated and con­trolled by a Sci­en­tific Board which is respon­si­ble for the plan­ning of activ­i­ties and for deci­sions about research pro­mo­tion. Mem­ber­ship on this board is based on sci­en­tific mer­its and rep­re­sents a cross sec­tion of all uni­ver­si­ties and areas of research.

    The scope of activ­i­ties of the Aus­trian Research Asso­ci­a­tion com­prises ques­tions of sci­ence and uni­ver­sity pol­i­tics, the estab­lish­ment of research groups for inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research top­ics, spe­cialised research fund­ing schemes (for instance the pro­grammes “Inter­na­tional Com­mu­ni­ca­tion” and “Pub­li­ca­tion Pro­mo­tion Scheme”) and giv­ing awards for out­stand­ing sci­en­tific achievements.
