Scholarship Description

The Austrian Academy of Sciences is calling for proposals for a new digital humanities programme. Groups of scientists from university and non-university research institutions in Austria who are still at the beginning of their careers are entitled to apply. The programme is primarily aimed at young scientists who wish to apply and enhance digital methods within the framework of cooperation projects.

The programme is intended to improve the framework conditions for data-based and data-driven research in the social sciences and humanities by intensifying the use of existing infrastructures, digital data, and tools.

The Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW) is Austria’s central non-university research and science institution. Its statutory mission is to “promote science in every way”. Founded in 1847 as a learned society, today the OeAW has over 770 members and 1,600 employees dedicated to innovative basic research, interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and the dissemination of new insights with the aim of contributing to progress in science and society as a whole.
