The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft is an extra-university research establishment for the disciplines of medicine, humanities, social sciences and cultural sciences, which has its Head Office in Austria.
We bring about benefits to society by taking up relevant questions in our research work and communicating results in generally accessible forms. Our main interest lies in topics which give fresh impetus to our research.
2. We bring different disciplines and participants together.
We consider questions from multiple perspectives and build bridges between basic and applied research. Many of our Institutes work on a transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary basis. Both inland and foreign research and user institutions participate in the set-up and work of our Institutes. This widens the circle of participants who can carry out research and profit from it.
3. We manage our Institutes professionally and from a forward-looking
We offer freedom and security to our employees and associates. Research programmes agreed over a long term and professional staff and research management provide the framework within which this can be achieved. Our team culture is based upon a performan-ce-related approach, mutual respect and involvement in decision-making processes. We place great value on the qualification of our employees and associates within the framework of research programmes in order to promote their career development.
4. We work innovatively and achieve the highest quality.
We develop new methods and approaches for driving forward the way in which knowledge is obtained in our research. Our research processes are designed to be transparent and we seek to implement results. Our Institutes are dynamic, creative units and their existence and establishment is guaranteed on the basis of performance and international evaluation results. It is often difficult to anticipate the results of high-level research. We deal with this risk as an independent organisation with a long-term perspective.
5. We are part of the international research community.
The content and quality of our work contribute to the further development of international research. At the same time, recognition within the international research community is an incentive for us to constantly develop our work further
