Friederike Wall is elected Scientific Advisory Board Member of the Austrian Research Association

On 28 June 2018, Friederike Wall was elected a Scientific Advisory Board Member by the Executive Committee, chaired by Christiane Spiel.

The Austrian Research Association (Österreichische Forschungsgemeinschaft, ÖFG) is funded by the Federal and Provincial Governments and was founded in 1977, with the intention of being a driving force in terms of science funding and policies in Austria, contributing to future-oriented, high-quality research and teaching standards in Austria. The Austrian Research Association strives to promote the interdisciplinary and cross-locational discourse on relevant scientific and societal topics and to initiate corresponding research, to provide sound information on issues relating to education and higher education, and to contribute to the advancement and promotion of junior scientists. The ÖFG has traditionally been presided over by a former Minister of Science. Currently, this function is held by Reinhold Mitterlehner.

The focus and scope of the Austrian Research Association’s activities are determined by the Scientific Advisory Board, which is responsible both for planning the Association’s activities as well as for granting funds according to exclusively scientific criteria. The members of the Scientific Advisory Board, who are chosen solely on the basis of their professional qualifications, are to not only represent all university locations in Austria, but also a broad spectrum of scientific fields.
