Mission Statement

The University of Vienna was founded by Duke Rudolph IV in 1365. It is the oldest university in the German-speaking world and one of the largest in Central Europe, as well as the largest teaching and research institution in Austria. It aims to sustain a wide range of studies, but at the same time to promote new and innovative fields of research, and to establish new networks between subjects. The main task and goal of this university lies in creating and sustaining top-quality research and teaching, which are regarded as one inseparable entity ('research-guided teaching'). A strong focus on research, combining fundamental with application-oriented research, renders this University highly attractive for the sharpest minds. Research and teaching at the University of Vienna comprise a wide range of faculties: from Catholic and Protestant Theology, Law, Business and Economics, Computer Science, Historical and Cultural Studies, Philological and Cultural Studies, Philosophy and Educational Sciences, Psychology, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry to Earth Sciences, Geography, Astronomy, Life Sciences, Translation Studies, Sports Sciences, and Molecular Biology. This makes the University an ideal institution for interdisciplinary research. The interdisciplinarity of the University of Vienna is reflected by the diversity of its staff, its participation in many international research networks and the international impact of its research findings.
