Mission: Academic freedom is the foundation for our actions. It also commits us to evaluate our work, research findings and new technologies critically and ethically. In this context, it is natural that we use our resources sustainably. We cultivate open and honest communication treating everyone on an equal footing. It is important to us to value personal achievements and support each other. By guaranteeing transparent structures and policies the University creates a motivating and engaging environment. The University embraces diversity: people, ideas, life aspirations, opinions and methods, which we promote by striving for (gender) equality, inclusion and facilitating a balance between work, education and life commitments. This diversity is a pre-requisite for insightful and inspiring higher education, academic excellence and social recognition. In this regard, the Leopold-Franzens University Innsbruck acts as a role model and is an active advocate for an open society.
