Request funding pot for research on social permeability in the education system.

Research on social permeability in higher education is a major concern of the Austrian National Union of Students (ÖH). Since there are few offers to implement research projects on the topic with funding, we see ourselves as ÖH responsible to support work on the topic. In order to promote the ongoing scientific examination of these topics, young scientists can apply for financial support within the framework of this pot. Accordingly, the scientific work or the scientific project must clearly show the scientific reference to the social dimension in studies and to social permeability. Furthermore, no prejudices, clichés, gender stereotypes or any other forms of discrimination (e.g. racism, classism, homophobia and transphobia) may be transported with it.

For legal reasons, we also enter this funding in the transparency database (see Transparency Database Act 2012).
