The network of researchers and company partners in acib is excellent and not only restricted to Austria. I established new collaborations for my future research projects, met new colleagues from different fields and I became a part of a great team. Besides, acib offered me flexible working hours and great support. This was crucial for successfully balancing my professional career and my family.
It was very helpful to connect with a large set of experts from industry and academia during my time as a PhD student to gain an understanding of different needs while simultaneously growing my network.
acib is a unique platform that combines the power of industry and the creativity of academic research in a highly synergetic and productive way. acib’s proximity to real-world industry and cutting-edge science guaranteed the potential to quickly build a vibrant professional network. In this sense, acib has enabled me to.
Interdisciplinarity is clearly expected in my company. Moreover, despite of not having true industry experience, I could already obtain some insights during acib projects with companies which helped me in transition.
For me, acib is a place, where I can contribute my ideas and where I have already gained experience in a wide variety of areas. If you want, you can contribute a lot to the development here and that is what creates a creative and appreciative working environment.
If you want to do research that is both scientifically excellent yet strongly inclined towards application, acib is your place to work. Outside the traditional university setting, acib allows you to pursue your own ideas from the first concept to the actual application in industry. acib opens doors – for your research as well as your personal career.
My position at acib came along with an extremely attractive start-up package that enabled me to pursue academic curiosity within an application orientated organization. acib showed me that academic freedom and industrial needs don’t have to be opposites. I think acib is one of a handful of examples that succeed in delivering industrial innovation in an open and inspiring academic environment.
