At the Acoustics Research Institute (ARI), all Praedocs meet bimonthly for a jour fixe to discuss topics that are particularly relevant for young researchers. The focus lies on research-related and administrative questions that cannot be covered by the supervisors and for which the “swarm intelligence” of the Praedocs offers fast and unbureaucratic help. We further consider ourselves to be the first contact point of Praedocs who are just starting out at ARI to not only strengthen the team spirit but also facilitate the integration of new employees. Questions of all sorts can be asked via praedocs(at)kfs.oeaw.ac.at.

The Austrian Academy of Sciences is not a degree-granting institution. Hence, ARI Praedocs are enrolled in degree programs at different universities, depending on their field of research.
