The University of Vienna bestows UNIVIE awards upon its staff whose achievements have been extraordinary. These awards should not only express the University’s appreciation but also showcase special improvements. Moreover, they are also intended to provide an incentive to future commitment.
This award is presented to people whose achievements in the area of internationalisation, networking and support for international students have been extraordinary.
Since 2013 the University of Vienna has been awarding prizes to university teachers whose achievements have been extraordinary. Each year there is another thematic focus.
