Research Projects

In the past years, several new research project groups have been set up at the department, most of them funded or co-funded by the Austrian Science Funds (FWF), but also by other Austrian and EU institutions. Research projects give gifted Ph.D. and post doctoral scholars the opportunity to write their theses while being in research employment, and allow the professorial staff of the department to pursue a new avenue of scholarship.
