Co­oper­a­tion in Re­search

Today, re­search is only possible within a re­search land­scape based on in­ter­na­tional net­works. This means that co­oper­a­tion has be­come an es­sen­tial factor for suc­cess­ful re­search. In­vestig­at­ors need to work with other re­search­ers, uni­versit­ies, re­search in­sti­tu­tions, busi­ness en­ter­prises, ad­vocacy groups, etc., both in na­tional and in­ter­na­tional con­texts. For this reason, WU is in­volved in many activ­it­ies that in­clude co­oper­a­tion with dif­fer­ent part­ners, for in­stance in the fol­low­ing con­texts:

  • WU re­search­ers act as pro­ject part­ners in re­search pro­jects that are mostly fun­ded by (in­ter­na­tional) spon­sors and fund­ing agen­cies

  • WU re­search­ers are co-au­thors of nu­mer­ous articles pub­lished in in­ter­na­tional journ­als

  • Co­oper­a­tion in­volving WU’s re­search in­sti­tutes and sup­port of the re­search in­sti­tutes

  • Co­oper­a­tion with WU’s part­ner uni­versit­ies

WU also par­ti­cip­ates in many pro­grams, ini­ti­at­ives, and part­ner­ships in the fields of re­search and know­ledge trans­fer:

  • Co­oper­a­tion with Stat­ist­ics Aus­tria (sup­ply­ing data for joint pro­jects)

  • Cli­mate Change Centre Aus­tria (CCCA)

  • Al­li­ance of Sus­tain­able Uni­versit­ies in Aus­tria

  • FIW re­search center on in­ter­na­tional eco­nom­ics

  • Wis­sen­strans­ferzen­trum Ost

WU is work­ing to sup­port its fac­ulty in build­ing up in­ter­na­tional net­works in dif­fer­ent ways, par­tic­u­larly by of­fer­ing in-­house mobil­ity grant pro­grams
