Research Year in Parliament

The "Research Year in Parliament" is awarded annually and supports a research project on a topic relevant to Parliament. Researchers from all academic disciplines are invited to submit their ideas.

Are you involved in a parliament-related research project, do you need access to the knowledge resources of the Austrian Parliament and would you like to exchange ideas directly with experts from the Parliamentary Administration?

Then submit your idea for the "Research Year in Parliament" which is annually awarded by the Parliamentary Administration. The initiative offers a contract for a scientific research project, in the total amount of EUR 16,000.00 gross. A project will be selected by the Scientific Advisory Board.

The "Research Year in Parliament" begins in the autumn of each year. The project is supposed to: (i) use the knowledge resources of the Austrian Parliament («Digital Bibliography of Parliamentary Research», archive, library, databases, parliamentary materials, etc.) and, thus, contribute to their contextualization and development, (ii) contribute to current scientific debates, and (iii) be relevant for parliamentary processes, the information activities of the Austrian Parliament and the provision of knowledge in and by the Parliamentary Administration.
