The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) is Austria's independent research incubator with a focus on the health sciences
World-class research must serve society and promote innovation: innovation comprises processes, work approaches, products and services. Only a commitment to consistent openness, interdisciplinarity and internationality can make innovation possible.
Translationality and quality assurance are an integral part of the work of the institutes and clusters of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft. Approaches must prove themselves within a limited period of time and lead to results. Clearly organised research requires management skills on the part of senior staff. These skills are cultivated at the LBG. This is how the LBG can create optimal conditions for the development of impressive researchers in a highly competitive environment. While strengthening Austria's position as a location for research at the same time.
Currently the LBG operates 18 research institutes und -clusters with about 600 employees. Acting according to its motto “Research for people”, the LBG deals with socially relevant research questions.
