Promotion of doctoral candidates

Early stage researchers highly contribute to the research output of the University. They promote new research ideas and foster the development of their research field. The training of the next generation of researchers and the support of young talents in their development as independent and internationally competitive researchers is a central task of the university. The University of Vienna considers it an institutional responsibility to provide structures and an environment in which doctoral candidates and their research can thrive.

Excellence in doctoral training has a long tradition at the University of Vienna. With the establishment of the Vienna Doctoral Schools and the Vienna Doctoral Academies the university sets a further initiative to foster doctoral training. The aim is to provide a platform that encourages a transdisciplinary dialog and exchange between excellent young researchers and supervisors. Furthermore, they will increase the visibility of doctoral education at the University of Vienna even more.
