LBG Career Center
The LBG Career Center is the first point of contact for questions on career development for (young) researchers and managers in and outside academia.
The task of the LBG Career Center is to provide confidential advice and support to (young) researchers in the selection and implementation of individual services as well as the conception and organisation of institutional services . In addition, the CC regularly carries out quality assurance measures and networks with relevant communities from science and industry. The LBG Career Center is currently funded by the National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development for a second project phase until 2022 and is located on the premises of the LBG office.
Structured programmes that support young researchers in the transition from science to an alternative career had not existed in Austria before the creationof the CC. LBG’s vision is to take on a pioneering role with the LBG Career Center as a competence center for intersectoral career development and to open up offers developed and tested in the CC to other research organisations and universities after positive evaluation.
