The evaluation was very positive for our Institute. We are pleased to present you the four main messages of the evaluation report:

  • The growth of the institute in terms of science as well as in terms of staff development is impressive. Important progress has been made since the last evaluation with regard to publications and patents as well as third party funding.
  • The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Lung Vascular Research has established itself as an institution with a significant international profile. 
  • The LBI for Lung Vascular Research offers an excellent environment for young researchers.
  • The panel was especially pleased to see that young researchers identify themselves with and want to work in the LBI: They see it as a strong functioning unit with a high research output, good training and career opportunities, and a general environment of openness and mutual respect, where they are allowed to flourish.
