Development Plan 

For an innovative research and science institution like the OeAW continuous development is crucial. The OeAW’s Development Plan – passed by the General Assembly - presents the strategic goals and measures the Academy intends to implement. It forms the basis for negotiating the Performance Agreement between the OeAW and the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF).


Development Plan for 2018-2020

Performance Agreement

Since 2012, the Austrian Academy states its planned major activities for the next three years in a performance agreement. This provides the basis for the federal funds allocated to the OeAW and thus ensures the Academy planning security for its endeavors. Since 2020, the performance agreement is concluded on the basis of the provisions of the Research Funding Act (FoFinaG). In the current planning agreement, the fourth of its kind, the Austrian Academy received 428.5 Mio EUR for the years 2021 – 2023.
