See our funding opportunities to involve stakeholders as active participants in your research

The OIS Center funds initiatives to involve citizens, patients, and other stakeholders as active participants in research at different stages of the research process, aiming at embedding public involvement activities in the Austrian research landscape.

Our funding schemes are accompanied by embedded facilitation and support services, including personal consultation, training opportunities and peer networks.

Research benefits in terms of increased quality and impact on society by addressing citizens’ and stakeholders’ needs and embracing their knowledge from personal experience or practice. Our selection panels and boards follow the same principles and are therefore external and independent bodies including relevant stakeholders outside academia.
