In 2020 the Lions Sponsorship was awarded for the sixth time. 16 submissions from 5 faculties of the TU Wien have been examined by a jury out of members of the Lions Club (Mag. Otto Postl, Dr. Herbert Hochegger and DI Michael Walter) and the TU Wien (Prof. Azra Korjenic; Prof. Hermann Hofbauer, Prof. Winter and Dr. Gudrun Weinwurm). 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).
