Houska Prize Winners Club

Networking platform for prize winners

Deepening ties and expanding the level of cooperation between universities and private research facilities is one of the B&C Private Foundation’s core goals. And to help achieve this over the long term, B&C set up the Houska Prize Winners Club in 2018. The aim is to promote exchange between business, science and research that goes beyond the annual Houska Prize award ceremony. All of the project owners and academics to have won the Houska Prize to date are members of an exclusive group of leading Austrian researchers.
