The interim / mid-term evaluation of our LBI for Lung Vascular Research (LBI-LVR) took place on 25th and 26th of November 2013. The LBG nominated Prof. Jürgen Behr (Asklepios Fachkliniken München-Gauting, DE), Prof. Nick Morrel (University of Cambridge, UK) and Prof. Lewis Rubin (University of California, San Diego, US) as members of the Evaluation Board. The evaluation was accompanied by Dr. Verena Kremling, Deputy Head of the Evaluation Panel of the German Leibniz Society.
The evaluation panel highlighted in its report in January 2014 that in the first 3.5 years of its existence, our institute has completed a very impressive establishment, started obtaining international visibility and presented excellent results. All in all, the review panel assessed the institute’s performance as excellent with the potential to achieve an outstanding position in the future.
The result of the evaluation was announced by DI Josef Pröll, President the Ludwig Boltzmann Society (LBG) on a press conference in Vienna on 7th of July 2014. Accordingly the contract of the Institute was re-signed in June 2014 for the next three years.
