Arts based research, the development of the arts and scientific research are essential elements in the objectives of art universities. Arts based research and scientific research takes place at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in many forms. Arts based research and scientific research form the basis of research-guided teaching at the Academy; as basic research, they are part of everyday life for artistic-scientific university staff and professors. However, research also, increasingly, takes on the form of projects and can thus be realized outside of the daily routine within explorative and experimental arrangements.

Research Grantees

The Academy regularly offers research grants for doctoral candidates. The Research Grantees are selected by a jury and on the basis of an open call. Learn more about their projects here.
