Research platforms are a successful tool for interdisciplinary research cooperation projects funded by the University of Vienna. Research platforms address academic questions that can only be studied from an interdisciplinary perspective. Funding from further sources complements the financial basis of the TURIS research:
The uni:docs fellowship programme is an individual scholarship which aims at financing excellent doctoral candidates. The fellowship will provide outstanding early stage researchers with conditions that allow them to focus exclusively on their research and thus make substantial contributions to science.
The DOC fellowships of the Austrian Academy of Sciences offer doctoral candidates the possibility to get the right qualifications for an academic career, that is, to improve their academic qualifications in academic and non-academic fields, increase their capacity to compete internationally or to be involved in international research programs and projects.
The ERC Advanced Grants of the European Research Council are designed to allow outstanding research leaders of any nationality and any age t pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects in Europe. The scheme targets researchers who have already established themselves as top independent research leaders.
FET Open of the European Commission supports the early-stages of the science and technology research and innovation around new ideas towards radically new future technologies. It also funds coordination and support actions for such high-risk forward looking research to prosper in Europe.
The goal of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility (between academic and non-academic sector).
