Projects in Progress

At the moment we have got two projects financed by the FWF, one Sparkling Science-project und an international cooperation dealing with hebrew fragments.

Furthermore we do research for the planned „Haus der Geschichte“ (House of History) of Lower Austria. Since the foundation of our institute biography research about the Jews of Austria and especially about the jewish community of St. Pölten is an important task.

Three associated independent projects follow up aspects of National Socialist times and culture of memory. At present the director of the institute supervises two dissertations.
