Upper Austrian Woman Researchers' Award 2015: The Award for Women in Research

Upper Austria is looking for the best female researchers in the province. Because their research accomplishments play a major part in the progress made in our province. Promoting talents and increasing the overall research potential – that is the aim that Upper Austria is pursuing so that it maintains its position among Europe's leading regions for research, innovation and technology in the future.

The Upper Austrian Woman Researchers' Award recognises women's achievements in science and research in Upper Austria. It is also intended to arouse young women's enthusiasm for research and encourage them to help shape the topics of the future. 2015 marks the third time that the Upper Austrian Woman Researchers' Award puts the outstanding research accomplishments of women in the spotlight.
