University of Vienna – A partner profile

The University of Vienna has a clear social mission: to educate the next generation of students and conduct research to contribute to the further development of our location’s capacity for innovation. The university’s openness to new ideas is therefore the driving force of research, enabling it to find answers to the greatest issues of our time. Founded in 1365, the University of Vienna is Austria’s largest and oldest research institution. With around 7,000 academics in 20 faculties and centres and 90,000 students, it is also the largest German-speaking university.

The University of Vienna is aware of its responsibility towards society, culture, and the business world. From students graduating and entering the professional world as critical thinkers and problem solvers, or scientists doing cutting-edge research that contributes to the innovation cycle, to researchers working every day to solve the big challenges of today’s world, the university provides stimuli to the outside world on a daily basis. The University makes a difference in everyday life in very different ways. Maintaining and fostering this impact does not happen by accident.

Valorisation, research communication, and knowledge exchange are not an easy task. Moreover, as the demand to do this is growing, the expectations towards researchers to communicate research results to a non-scientific audience are increasing. Professional support by dedicated staff is therefore of utmost importance. The University of Vienna offers a wide range of support and services to help researchers get involved and succeed in knowledge exchange, technology transfer, and valorisation activities.
