It should be noted that scientific work that has already been honoured by the University of Innsbruck will not be awarded a prize a second time. This applies to the following prizes: Preis des Fürstentums Liechtenstein für wissenschaftliche Forschung an der Universität Innsbruck und der Medizinischen Universität Innsbruck, Preis der Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck für wissenschaftliche Forschung an der Universität Innsbruck

Works with a thematic reference to South Tyrol have priority over others of the same scientific quality.

The research prize of the Stiftung Südtiroler Sparkasse can only be awarded once to the same person.

The research prizes are awarded by the University of Innsbruck on behalf of the Südtiroler Sparkasse Foundation to those persons who are proposed by the Vice-Rector for Research of the University of Innsbruck after international review and preparation by an advisory committee.

The research prize will presumably be awarded at a ceremony in the winter semester of the following academic year.

The German version prevails over the English one in case of deviations.
