This is what the Austrian Agency
for scientific integrity


Tasks of the ÖAWI

The Agency makes its expertise available to raise awareness and prevent research misconduct. It also offers lectures and workshops on the topic of good scientific practice for member institutions.

The OeAWI provides a neutral and factual platform for investigating cases of (alleged) research misconduct thoroughly and objectively. The Commission for Research Integrity is responsible for professionally investigating such cases in Austria, evaluating the severity of each violation and recommending follow-up measures.
