The ESQ Discovery Programme was advertised nationally for the fifth time, asking for applications for innovative research projects including radically new ideas and high-risk projects.
Six researchers won the highly competitive fifth round of ESQ Discovery Projects, which will allow them to do high-profile research at TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology), the University of Innsbruck, and the University of Vienna for a maximum of 12 months. The projects are funded by a maximum of € 100,000 each.
