Initiative: Forschungsvielfalt

Die Initiative: Forschungsvielfalt wurde ins Leben gerufen, um für eine starke, vielfältige und zukunftsfähige Forschungslandschaft in Österreich einzutreten. Vielfalt und Wettbewerb sind dabei unverzichtbare Faktoren für ein effektives und gut funktionierendes Forschungssystem, zu dem sowohl Grundlagenforschung als auch anwendungsorientierte Forschung gehören. Universitäten, Fachhochschulen sowie außeruniversitäre Forschungseinrichtungen haben darin ebenso ihren Platz wie große und etablierte Forschungsorganisationen oder kleine und flexible Forschungseinheiten.
