About the OeAWI
Areas of activity of the Austrian Agency
for Research Integrity
The OeAWI raises awareness for the Standards of Good Scientific Practice among researchers as well as the general public.
The Agency strengthens responsibility in research and ensures the observance of the respective guidelines.
Its activities focus on investigating and preventing misconduct in research, not on imposing sanctions for misconduct.
Most important to the OeAWI’s activities is ensuring Good Scientific Practice in Austrian higher education and research.
The services of the OeAWI comprise individual advising, prevention workshops as well as training programs for established and early stage researchers strengthening their sense of GSP. Additionally, the Commission for Research Integrity is engaged in investigating alleged violations of GSP.
The Austrian Agency for Research Integrity (OeAWI) was established as an Association in 2008. The Association has now grown to 38 member institutions, including all Austrian public universities, universities of applied sciences, various non-university research institutions and research funding agencies.
The Agency is mainly funded by its membership fees.
