Research networks and platforms

The Institute of Astrophysics is involved in the following research networks at the University of Vienna:

Third-party funded projects

Innovation in research is often enabled and driven by third-party funded projects: Since 2015 five European Research Council (ERC) grants, an outstanding National Research Network (NFN) funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and a big ESA Prodex project have been awarded to scientists of our department. Next to these projects, our postdoctoral researchers gained many national and international projects (MSCA-PF, EU H2020, FWF ESPRIT, FWF Lise Meitner Fellowships, FWF Elise Richter Fellowships).
