The Science Award of the Vienna University of Technology is intended to give young researchers the opportunity to plan their research in the longer term and to a large extent financially secure. Project leaders should qualify for a leadership position in the science system through autonomous development and leadership of a working group.
The prize, endowed with € 500,000, was put out to tender for the first time in 2010, the other tenders take place every two years.
