GFF NÖ sees it as its task to accompany people on their way into science:

  • With scholarships to support the time of study and possibly stays abroad, or also with social scholarships:
  • Also for those who are looking for a topic for their thesis, whether for Bachelor, Master or PhD, we offer with the topic exchange the possibility to choose a topic relevant to our state, and related advice and support:

For all those who are working in a Lower Austrian research institution or a researching company after having completed their education, the contact to us remains. Annually announced calls for research funds in basic and applied research enable the financing of research projects within the framework of the state's RTI strategy. Transparent allocation ensures fair competition.
