Austrian Research Association (ÖFG)
The Austrian Research Association (ÖFG) is sponsored by the Federal Government and the federal states and was founded in 1977. Its aim is to give fresh impetus to science funding and science policies in Austria, thereby improving the future orientation and quality control of research and teaching in Austria. The ÖFG seeks to promote interdisciplinary and inter-site dialogue on topics of scientific and societal relevance and to encourage pertinent research projects. It also works on educational and university policy topics using well-founded approaches and helps to encourage up-and-coming scientific talent.
