Science Talk 2019 at the University of Vienna

Join us on a journey through the world of early stage research. Our young academics present their research projects and talk about their life at the University.

During the Science Talk, six Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows and twelve ERC Starting Grant awardees talk about the relevance of their results for the advancement of research and discuss how their research aims at promoting social and economic developments. Seize this opportunity to ask our early stage researchers questions and engage in a dialogue with them.

The European Research Council awards ERC Starting Grants based on a competitive selection procedure. It thus enables early stage researchers, after obtaining a doctoral degree, to form their own research group. With the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships, the European Union promotes the mobility of early stage researchers by enabling research stays at universities all over Europe and worldwide.
