Teaching and research in the fields of critical women's and gender studies and feminist research has been conducted at the University of Innsbruck for over twenty years. The restructuring of the University of Innsbruck has allowed greater collaboration opportunities in this area. In the summer of 2005, the inter-faculty research focus was launched, which was upgraded to the research platform Gender Studies: Identities - Discourses - Transformations on 1 January 2008. In 2019, the network further expanded, leading to the research platform Center Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Innsbruck (CGI).
