Austrian Science Fund (FWF) Info Session at the JKU

Austrian Science Fund (FWF) Info Session at the JKU, Tuesday 10.4.2018, 10:00 -14:00, JKU UC6

Austrian Science Fund staff present.
The Science Fond (=Wissenschaftsfonds) is Austria's central funding organization in support of base-knowledge research. Funding programs are open to everyone in all academic and scientific disciplines and are especially attractive for researchers who wish to pursue an academic career. Here you can learn more about the different structure and direction of funding programs.
Advising sessions will follow (individual or in groups) to address any concrete questions as well as support the exchange of information with colleagues (experiences, tips, ...).

The goal is to provide information and personal guidance to see what kinds of funding opportunities are available for those at different career levels. The information session also provides concrete note and examples as well as an opportunity to talk with colleagues.

This event is ideal for junior researchers in the middle or at the end of their pre-doctorate program or beginning a post-doc program.

Details for the registration process will follow.

Seminar Funding Programs and Requirements for Junior Researchers

Scientific and academic development does not only take place just at universities, but rather within international scientific communities. In this regard, externally funded research activities are very important for a scientist or academic's biography. Many different (inter)national programs focus on funding research. This event provides an introduction and insight into the structures and funding programs, acquisition and procedures as well as basic information about project management.

Next Training Session Date:
Thursday May 24, 2018, 8:30 - 10:00 AM
Location: KG 710, "Kopfgebäude" Building, 7th Floor

Research Funding “Stammtisch” organised by FUN

We would like to invite anyone interested to take part!
In 2015 we have started a regularly scheduled get-together to talk frankly and directly about topics related to research funding.

The get-togethers take place at the Science Café every 4th Thursday of the month beginning at 2:00 PM.

We will have the most recent, up-to-date information and be available to answer any concrete questions you may have. This is also an opportunity for you to get in touch with other colleagues and exchange information.
Please let us know beforehand if there is anything in particular you would like to talk about, discuss or learn more about so we can prepare information in advance.
