Knowledge creates value
The Christian Doppler Research Association promotes cooperation between expert scientists and innovative businesses. The collaboration takes place in Christian Doppler Laboratories and Josef Ressel Centres.
Christian Doppler Laboratories pursue application-oriented basic research at universities or non-university research institutions, while Josef Ressel Centres carry out research at universities of applied sciences. In both cases, research ideas come from the private sector. The research groups are established for a limited period and are embedded in their respective academic research environment. The groups have a high degree of scientific freedom and are evaluated on an international level. The applications for Christian Doppler Laboratories and Josef Ressel Centres are thematically open and can be submitted at any time.
Christian Doppler Laboratories and Josef Ressel Centres are programmes funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. Public financing is also provided through the Austrian National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development.
