The Austrian Science Fund is Austria’s central body for the promotion of basic research. FWF is equally committed to all fields of science and the humanities and is guided in its operations solely by the standards of the international scientific community. The FWF was founded by the government in 1968 as an independent and autonomous fund for the support and promotion of basic research in Austria.
