Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW)
"The Austrian Academy of Sciences promotes and conducts open source basic research. Renowned researchers from Austria and abroad have formed a comprehensive knowledge pool covering a wide array of disciplines for the sake of progress in science as a whole.
All of the Academy‘s activities are closely networked at national, EU, and international levels with university and non-university partners. The Academy gives new impetus by taking up new, forward-looking research. Scientific quality, innovation potential and sustainability are the main criteria for the Academy‘s research profile. As centres of excellence, the Academy‘s research institutions must stand the test of international competition in the form of periodic evaluations. The Academy offers fellowships to talented young scholars in promotion programs that are committed exclusively to the standards of the international scientific community, thus giving highly qualified junior scientists an opportunity to develop scientific expertise.
The Austrian Academy of Sciences is a partner of the Vienna Open Medical Institute. Its special tasks will be to familiarize the scholar Austria's biomedical research landscape and to help promoting and securing the scientific quality of the exchange program."GEORG STINGL, M.D.
