In 2018 the Lions Sponsorship was awarded for the fourth time. 15 submissions from 8 faculties of the TU Wien have been examined by a jury out of members of the Lions club and the TU Wien. The applications have been evaluated by general and scientific criteria (e.g. demonstration of use of the subsidies, description of the scientific methodology, innovation degree of the work, as well as their potential).
