Young Investigator Awards Conferred

On the "Day of the University", gifted young researchers were awarded for their projects in various fields of research.

18 ForscherInnen aus den Themengruppen Arts & Humanities, Law & Economics sowie Natural & Life Sciences hatten sich im Vorfeld des „Tages der Universität“ um den Young Investigator Award beworben. Im Viertelstunden-Takt stellten sie am frühen Nachmittag ihre Arbeiten vor und fieberten dem abendlichen Festakt entgegen, wo die Gewinner des Young Investigator Awards in den drei Sparten verkündet wurden.

Im Bereich Arts & Humanities gewann Patrick Kutschar mit seiner Arbeit über Interviewer-Effekte und deren Konsequenzen für Schmerzaussagen von Altenheim-BewohnerInnen. Den zweiten Preis erhielt Robert Obermair, der über den österreichischen Wissenschaftler und Politiker Oswald Menghin und dessen Netzwerke geforscht hat. An dritter Stelle folgte Pia Schoknecht. Ihr Thema: Die Schwierigkeit beim Abrufen von Wörtern aus dem Gedächtnis in Anwesenheit von Ablenkern innerhalb von Sätzen.

Im Fachbereich Law & Economics wurde Markus Tiefenbacher mit seiner Forschungsarbeit über den für 2019 geplanten Familienbonus in Österreich ausgezeichnet. Der Zweitplatzierte Ulrich Ernst Palma beschäftigte sich mit Crowdinvesting als alternativer Finanzierungsmöglichkeit. Platz 3 belegte Markus Ellmer, der über die Erwartungen von multinationalen Unternehmen an ihre zukünftigen Mitarbeiter forschte.  

Platz 1 im Bereich Nature & Life Sciences ging an Georg Zimmermann. Er hatte seine Forschungsarbeit der Datenanalyse von seltenen Krankheiten gewidmet, vor allem der Frage, ob es weiterer Verfeinerungen in der Forschung bedarf. Den zweiten Preis errangen Julia Reichenberger und Ovidiu Csillik. Reichenberger versuchte die Frage zu beantworten, wie negativ Positivität sein kann, und Csillik führte eine räumlich-zeitliche objektbasierte Bildanalyse zur Kartierung der Landwirtschaft durch.

    Political education has been a general teaching principle in Austria since 1978, that is, an educational and developmental task, which is the responsibility of the teachers of all school subjects and grades. The lecture series will show ways in which democracy education can work in different subjects, so that student teachers and educators have different perspectives on the same fundamental challenge.
    In this workshop, the eye should play an important role next to the ear. Using exercises, the participants will approach the subject in small groups and form visual, as well as acoustic sound.
    The relatively young democracy of Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore.

    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and, vice versa, the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective.
