The Christian Doppler Research Association
The scientific board of the Christian Doppler Research Association plays an essential role in the scientific review and selection of Christian Doppler Laboratories and Josef Ressel Centers. It consists of highly qualified personalities from the worlds of science and business and is an essential part of the Austrian research landscape. The members assess scientific frameworks as well as applications for research units and evaluate the progress of research in the submitted and funded projects. The funded research takes place at Christian Doppler Laboratories in universities and in non-university research institutions as well as at Josef Ressel Centers in universities of applied sciences. The research questions are always based on a research issue of a company.
