History

The LBG since 1960

The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) is founded in 1960 as a non-profit-making organisation in Vienna. The purpose of the LBG includes all matters relating to the promotion of research. Having received a grant from federal resources, the LBG is able to deal with individual research projects from the start. In 1965, LBG takes the first step towards achieving the main object of its statutes - to set up and run research institutes - with the founding of the first Ludwig Boltzmann Institute, the LBI for Solid-state Physics.
