Illustration Forschungsplattformen und -zentren

Research Centres

Successful research platforms can be converted into research centres after completion of the maximum funding. Research centres are subunits of a faculty/centre and are partly funded by it. They are established following presentation of a concept that is evaluated internationally. Research centres are regularly evaluated and are financed to a significant proportion by third-party funds. Research centres are only established for the duration of the employment of their head.

Researchers of the Faculty of Social Sciences are currently invovled in the research centre “Religion and Transformation in Contemporary European Society” and the research centre “Vienna Center for Electoral Research (VieCER)”, which is also based at the Faculty.
