The "Vienna CogSciHub” is a network of researchers at the University of Vienna who are active in various disciplines of Cognitive Science and Neuroscience. It is our mission to provide services, information, and networking opportunities to foster and promote interdisciplinary cooperation between participating scholars interested in the functioning and interaction of mind and brain.

Our institution is an initiative of the Rectorate of the University of Vienna to establish a sustainable, long-term and internationally competitive profile of cognitive science and neuroscience in Vienna. We envision to develop a strong research-based community that builds on the broad profile of the University of Vienna that deal with mind and brain - from the humanities to the natural sciences


We strengthen existing research and elicit new and innovative interdisciplinary approaches by disseminating methodological expertise, providing research services in the domains of statistics, data science, and subject recruiting system, seed grants for proposal writingmatchmaking for scholars of different disciplines, access to research labs as to foster common research questions and projects. 


Educational programs associated with the CogSciHub are the ViennaDoctoralSchool CoBeNe (Vienna Doctoral School "Cognition, Behavior, Neuroscience") and MEi:CogSci (Middle European Interdisciplinary Master Programme in Cognitive Science).
