 Briefly describe your organisation
The University of Innsbruck is western Austrias largest institution of higher education and research (organised in 15 faculties and 86 departments: http://www.uibk.ac.at/fakultaeten/) and covers a broad range of teaching areas (about 24000 Students, 4400 staff members). Due to the geographical situation the emphasis in research and study programmes can be found on social, ecological and economic issues of the alpine region. The University of Innsbruck serving as the home university of the Austrian provinces of the Tyrol and Vorarlberg as well as the home University of Liechtenstein and the Autonome Provinz Bozen – Südtirol / Provinzia Autonoma di Bolzano – Alto Adige (Italy) follows – concerning to its plan for development – a massive wider opening to the public. At Innsbruck University exists much of experience regarding the implementation of EU projects: there are many researchers of different faculties involved in EU projects (in 2008 with an overall amount of 29.6 million €), and a so-called “project service department” (http://www.uibk.ac.at/projektservice/) offers administrative support for researchers concerned.
