Vienna Awarded First Hedy Lamarr Prize to Salzburg Researcher

Vienna (APA) - This year for the first time, the City of Vienna awarded the Hedy Lamarr Prize, and the award went to the Salzburg researcher Verena Fuchsberger-Staufer, for her "extraordinary achievements in the field of information technology".

Das teilte das Büro von Wissenschaftsstadträtin Veronica Kaup-Hasler (SPÖ) kürzlich mit. Der 10.000-Euro-Preis ist nach der Schauspielerin und Erfinderin Hedy Lamarr benannt.Er wird ab sofort jährlich an eine österreichische Wissenschafterin für innovative Leistungen in der IT vergeben und soll Vorbilder für junge Frauen in diesem Forschungsbereich anspornen.

Die erste Preisträgerin beschäftigt sich mit Chancen und Risiken der Verschmelzung von Mensch und Maschine. "Fuchsberger-Staufer arbeitet im Spannungsfeld zwischen der Informatik und den Sozialwissenschaften. Sie benutzt für ihre Forschung nicht nur die Informatik, sie arbeitet auch aktiv an der Entwicklung von neuen Methoden, die vielfältige Anwendungen in verschiedenen Bereichen des täglichen Lebens finden können", heißt es in der Entscheidung der dreiköpfigen Jury.

    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters.
