Anniversary Fund of the City of Vienna for the OeAW
The Anniversary Fund of the City of Vienna for the OeAW supports projects in all areas of research that are of relevance to the city of Vienna. Formed on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the OeAW in 1997, the Anniversary Fund welcomes applications from researchers at the OeAW and all other Viennese research units.
Since 2014 topic-specific opportunities are tendered every two years, providing funding for research projects of up to € 100,000 per project.
Since 2009 the Anniversary Fund also finances prizes for publications by OeAW researchers. The Best Paper Award is awarded to OeAW staff conducting research in the field of Mathematics and the Natural Sciences, while the Best Publication Award rewards OeAW scholars in the field of the Humanities and the Social Sciences.
