Schools are excellent research partners. In Austria, there are numerous educational institutions that have been successfully collaborating with research institutions for years or are interested in doing so. Looking for a school partner? Here is an overview of contact options.

Research Partner Schools

Since 2012, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research has been awarding the Young Science Seal of Approval for Research Partner Schools to schools that stand out for their exceptional commitment and successful collaborations with research institutions. The aim is to honor scientific commitment and showcase it every two years. So far, 59 different schools throughout Austria have received awards in the course of six calls for entries, some of them several times in succession.

Contact Persons for Citizen Science at Schools

In addition to the research partner schools, there are many other schools that would like to cooperate with research institutions and are happy to receive requests for cooperation. Contact persons at schools are listed on the Young Science website.
