The Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) has accepted further young researchers into its scholarship programs. In 2022, 103 young scientists were awarded a scholarship. 14 of these grants went to researchers at MedUni Vienna.

The range of projects selected as part of an international peer review process once again covers the entire spectrum of sciences – from natural sciences to life sciences and medicine to humanities, social sciences and cultural studies. For its implementation, the OeAW is providing a total of 19.3 million euros from funds from the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, the National Foundation and the MAX KADE Foundation.

The DOC, DOC-team, APART-GSK and APARTMINT programs for young researchers provide financial support for research projects in the natural and technical sciences, life sciences and medicine, as well as in the humanities, social sciences and cultural studies.
