Inter-university network – UniKid-UniCare Austria

In a network of experts on compatibility and transferring knowledge to children and young people, the compatibility and childcare officers work together with the heads of the compatibility, family and children’s offices to anchor and further develop the concept of balancing academia/a career with family duties in a university context. One of the key achievements of the collaboration was the inclusion of compatibility in the Austrian Universities Act 2002. You can learn more about the UniKid-UniCare Austria network here.

TU Wien has worked in this inter-university network of compatibility experts for many years and has made a significant contribution towards setting up and developing the network since 2009. Current spokespeople: Martina Fröhlich (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna) and Katharina Mayerhofer (University of Art and Design Linz).
