Youth Science Competition of the University of Vienna

In the Youth Science Competition the University of Vienna is looking for young and original answers to seven major questions which are currently concerning our society:

How will we work tomorrow? What unites Europe? How can we save the climate of our planet?
How much does democracy mean to us? Health from the lab - what is possible? How are we living in tomorrow´s digital future? How does migration change Europe?

Pupils from grade 9 onwards who attend a school in Austria were allowed to participate. The answer to one of the questions had to be provided in the form of a written scientific paper.

Team Barrierefrei

Within the University of Vienna, the staff members of Team Barrierefrei take care of the issues disability, impairment and accessibility. They assist students with impairments in organising support, such as the needed adaptation of examinations (e.g. audible text for the blind), exeptions in courses (e.g. the recovery of learning content for people who had to stay in hospital) or planning their semester (e.g. stepless access to lecture rooms for students in wheelchairs). Team Barrierefrei also offers counselling and presentations. It provides information on the possibilities for support for students with different kinds of impairments at the University of Vienna (e.g. website, brochure).
