IIASA Acting Director General, Wolfgang Lutz, will receive the Science Prize of the Austrian Research Association for his outstanding scientific achievements and the scientific-political relevance and high topicality of his research. The event will take place in German.

The Austrian Research Association (OeFG)’s Science Prize is awarded every two years and aims to make Austrian science visible by recognizing and appreciating both the extraordinary achievements of a person and outstanding scientific work. Awardees are selected by the OeFG Scientific Advisory Board, which is made up of recognized representatives of the various scientific disciplines and is confirmed by the Executive Committee. 2023 marks the 16th time the Science Prize is awarded since it was first established.

In March 2023, Lutz was notified of his achievement, and he will officially be presented with the Science Prize during a ceremony organized by the OeFG.

Several partners will participate in the event as laudatory speakers, including:

  • Reinhold Mitterlehner, OeFG;
  • Andreas Edel, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research / Population Europe; and
  • Heinrich Schmidinger, University of Salzburg / OeFG.
