Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften

Rafal Kosakowski developed a comprehensive UI design for the websites of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) and its research institutes. The ÖAW is a learned society and the largest provider of non-university basic research in Austria. Founded in 1847 as the Imperial Academy of Sciences in Vienna, it is now a largely state-funded institution with an annual basic budget of around €100 million, over 770 elected members, around 1800 employees and 25 research institutes in Vienna, Graz, Linz, Innsbruck and Leoben. The primary task of the ÖAW is the promotion of science. In addition to scientifically based social and political advice and basic research, it is active in the promotion of excellent young scientists. In the course of international framework programs and cooperations, the ÖAW also maintains a global research network.
