Sparkling Science is a research programme of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) which started in 2007. It adopts an innovative way in the promotion of young scientists by funding projects in which students are actively involved in the research process by working side by side with scientists in current scientific research projects. The current evaluation carried out by AQ Austria in 2014 analyses the impacts on students and teachers participating in Sparkling Science projects. Click here for the report (in German).
