Research Networks

At the beginning of 2014, the University of Vienna’s first research networks have been established for an initial period of three years. Research networks help to reach a critical mass in socially relevant topics at the University of Vienna that are intended to be the basis for research platforms and third-party funded projects in the pillar “Societal Challenges” of the EU’s Horizon 2020 framework programme. The participating faculties and centres finance the research networks.


Researchers of the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies are currently participating in the research network
