The University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna is the only veterinary, academic educational and research institution in Austria and at the same time the oldest in the German speaking countries (founded 1765 by Empress Maria Theresia). The University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna conducts research on topics that are important for society. It focuses on animal health as well as preventive veterinary medicine, public health and food safety. Research interests include the creation of scientific foundations for animal welfare, animal husbandry, animal protection and animal ethics.

The University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna has been represented on Österreich forscht for a long time now, and with the commitment of the project management in the various working groups, it has become a very important and valued partner in the Citizen Science Network Austria.
