Research Areas (RA), Research Platforms (RP) and Research Centers (RC) were established 10 years ago to strengthen and highlight the research profile of Innsbruck University. [more...]
Research Areas and Research Platforms are interdisciplinary units with up to 60 habilitated researchers established around a specific research topic. Research Centers are considerably smaller but also bring together highly qualified researchers to work on a common research topic.
The system of Research Areas, Research Platforms and Research Centers is very important for the research efforts of Innsbruck University. [more...]
Researchers organized in the Research Area System are responsible for 85% of all publications in the Web of Science and 75% of all research grants.
The Research Area System is evaluated periodically on the basis of quantitative and qualitative indicators (excellence, coherence, internationalization, research grants). [more...]
After the evaluation speakers of all units present their research results and future research plans at the so called ‘Zukunftsplattform Obergurgl’.
In 2016 a new structure of internally organized doctoral programs was introduced in order to further connect research and teaching. The new doctoral programs are integrated into the Research Area System. [more...]
A Doctoral Program is a unit formed by several scientists or scholars whose research is of an internationally leading standard. Doctoral candidates are offerd a structured educational program, are integrated in the research process and will spend some time abroad. All Research Areas and Research Platforms aim to establish at least one Doctoral Program.
