Innovation needs talent
Austria is rich in talents; people are the foundation of tomorrow’s knowledge-based society. Therefore, the BMVIT strongly supports people in research and developement: The discovery, support and development of young talents focuses on students. But established researchers are supported as well to make the most of their talents. In addition, projects which ensure equality for men and women in research are funded.
Through this talent portfolio the BMVIT creates an attractive framework for researchers and supports Austria´s talents.
