It should be noted that scientific papers that have already been awarded by the University of Innsbruck will not be awarded a second prize.


The “Preis der Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck für wissenschaftliche Forschung” can only be awarded once to one and the same person.


The proposal for awarding the prize is prepared by the responsible member of the Rectorate on the basis of independent expert opinions.


The award of the “Preis der Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck für wissenschaftliche Forschung” is expected to take place within the framework of a ceremonial presentation in winter 2023/24.


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