The Development Plan of the University of Vienna specifies the guiding principles for the University's further development and the central implementation steps. With regard to research, the Development Plan defines a dynamically evolving profile which emphasises basic research open to application as well as interdisciplinarity as unique features of the University of Vienna. Interdisciplinary master's programmes realise the guiding principle of research-led teaching. The Bologna framework will be used to ensure greater vertical and horizontal mobility. For bachelor’s and diploma programmes, framework conditions need to be established that enable more satisfactory student-teacher ratios. The University further enhances the quality of its doctoral programmes.
