The promotion of young scientists is one of the ÖGMBT’s main goals.

Regularly awarding scientific prizes is an important measure to support early-stage researchers. Additionally, these awards highlight the excellence in the Austrian research landscape and increase the visibility of exceptional life sciences topics in the public.

Life Science Awards Austria

Each year, the ÖGMBT initiates a unique nationwide search in order to find the brightest young researchers in the Life Sciences field across all of Austria.

There are different award categories available:

Life Science Research Awards Austria

  • Basic Science (1 Prize à € 3.000.-)
  • Applied Research (1 Prize à € 3.000.-)

The submission for the Austrian Life Science Awards is now open!

The Award Ceremony will take place during the ÖGMBT Annual Meeting in Vienna – currently we are planning the Award Ceremony for September 19, in the late afternoon. The award winners will be asked to present their research at the ceremony. (If the Annual Meeting needs to be held virtually, we intend to bestow the Awards at a small, live festive ceremony and the research presentations will be publicly livestreamed – to the Austrian life science community.)
