Österreich als starker Pharmastandort

Wien (OTS/BMAW) -
Österreich zählt zu den führenden Pharma-Standorten weltweit mit internationaler Forschung und einem stetig expandierenden Unternehmensumfeld. Mit einem Anteil von sieben Prozent am Bruttoinlandsprodukt und rund 60.000 Arbeitsplätzen ist der Life Science-Sektor nicht nur von zentraler Bedeutung für die Gesundheitsversorgung, sondern auch für den Standort. Um diese Vorreiterrolle weiter zu stärken, wurde 2022 ein FFG-Life-Science Paket in Höhe von 50 Millionen Euro aufgelegt. Dieses stieß auf eine große Nachfrage. 118 Anträge wurden von 108 Unternehmen eingereicht. Aufgrund dieses großen Erfolgs setzt das Arbeits- und Wirtschaftsministerium den Life Science-Schwerpunkt bei der Österreichischen Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft (FFG) mit einem weiteren Forschungsinvestitionspaket in Höhe von 45 Millionen Euro für die Jahre 2024 bis 2026 fort. Zusätzlich profitiert der Life Science Sektor erheblich von der steuerlichen Forschungsprämie. Im langjährigen Durchschnitt werden ca. 15 - 20 Prozent des Gesamtvolumens - dieses betrug 2023 immerhin 1,2 Milliarden Euro - von Unternehmen aus dem Life Science Bereich beantragt.

„Die Pharma-Branche zählt zu den strategischen Schlüsselindustrien und mit über 60.000 Beschäftigten auch zu den wichtigsten Arbeitgebern. Darüber hinaus stärkt sie die Zukunfts- und Wettbewerbsfähigkeit sowie die Resilienz des Standorts. Es ist unser Ziel, die besten Rahmenbedingungen für Patientinnen und Patienten und für heimische Betriebe zu schaffen, um die Gesundheitsversorgung sowie Wohlstand und Arbeitsplätze im Land zu sichern. Daher investieren wir 45 Millionen Euro zusätzlich in den Life Science- und Pharmastandort Österreich“, so Arbeits- und Wirtschaftsminister Martin Kocher.

„Aufgrund der langen Entwicklungszeiten, des hohen Entwicklungsrisikos und strenger regulatorischer Vorgaben verlangt der Life Science-Sektor nach passgenauer Unterstützung. Mit dem ‚Austrian Life Sciences-Programme‘ bietet die FFG nun seit zwei Jahren ein Erfolg versprechendes Förderinstrument an – dies bestätigt auch die hohe Nachfrage", so FFG-Geschäftsführerin Henrietta Egerth. „Daher freut es uns besonders, das ‚Austrian Life Sciences-Programme‘ im Auftrag des Wirtschaftsministeriums weiterzuführen und damit einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Stärkung Österreichs als Life Science- und Pharmastandort zu leisten.“

Über das Programm „Austrian Life Sciences“

Das neue Programm wird durch die Österreichische Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft (FFG) abgewickelt. Gefördert werden Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprojekte, klinische Studien bzw. Leitprojekte mit kleineren und größeren Projektvolumen. Die Förderungsobergrenzen liegen bei einer Million Euro bei Unternehmensprojekten der Industriellen Forschung, drei Millionen Euro im Falle von Unternehmensprojekten der Experimentellen Entwicklung und klinischen Studien sowie vier Millionen Euro beim Leitprojekt. Für die Jahre 2024 bis 2026 stehen insgesamt 45 Millionen Euro für Förderungen zur Verfügung. Förderungen werden im Laufe des 1. Quartals 2024 möglich sein. Das Geld wird gezielt dazu verwendet, unternehmerische, angewandte Forschung im Pharma- und Life Science-Bereich entlang des gesamten Entwicklungszyklus zu fördern.

Über Österreich als Pharmastandort

Über 1.000 Firmen der Life Science Branche erzielten im Jahr 2020 einen Rekordumsatz von 25,1 Milliarden Euro. Mehr als sieben Prozent des österreichischen BIP entfallen auf den Life Science Bereich. Mit einer Forschungsquote von 20,5 Prozent ist die Branche besonders innovationsfreudig und zählt zu den Top-Innovatoren. Die Branche beschäftigt über 60.000 hochqualifizierte Arbeitskräfte, mit einem Beschäftigungsplus von 8,9 Prozent seit 2018.

The Human Frontiers Science Program has opened its interdisciplinary, international research grants call and is looking for bold, high-risk, high-gain, game-changing applications in out-of-this-world life science. Dare you apply!?

Do you have a bold idea for a project – something you would never dare to write a proposal about as most funding agencies would reject it directly telling you it is “not feasible,” “too high risk,” “you have no preliminary data,” or “it cannot be done by a biologist”? What, if all these points are true of your idea? And – what if you would need to work with a smart physicist, a very skilled chemist, or an inventive modeller? Despite all obstacles you’re sure this is a compelling idea – one that might even change the way we think of biology.

Well, if this is YOU, then take a look at the Human Frontiers Science Program (HFSP): https://www.hfsp.org/

HFSP awards Research Grants to interdisciplinary, international teams (preferably intercontinental) for cutting-edge, basic research in the life sciences and Fellowships to postdoctoral researchers, who either embark on a new field of investigation within the life sciences, or who move from another discipline – physics, chemistry, or engineering – into the life sciences.

The Human Frontiers Science Program asks for exactly the kind of features that cause other funders to shy away from a proposal. We want: bold ideas, high-risk, high-gain, game-changing concepts and researchers who are brave enough to try a new line of research!

HFSP Research Grants

The new call for HFSP Research Grants has just opened with a deadline in March. You need to get into the application system and initiate an application by 19 March 2024, at the latest, and submit the complete Letter of Intent by 28 March 2024. Research Grants are awarded to international and interdisciplinary teams of scientists, who have not collaborated before, but wish to work together to solve a fundamental question in the life sciences. HFSP offers two types of grant awards: Research Grants – Early Career and Research Grants Program.

HFSP Fellowships

The call for HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships will also open soon with a submission deadline in May. There are two types of Fellowships. Long-Term Fellowships are for applicants with a PhD in the life sciences who want to move to a different country and in a new direction of research. Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships are for applicants who hold a doctoral degree in a non-biological discipline (e.g., physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, or computer sciences) and have not worked in the life sciences before.

Highlights of the Program

A recently awarded team developed new methods that allowed them to determine what our ancestors ate millions of years ago just by studying their teeth. Another team brought together material scientists and brain researchers to investigate whether there are similarities between how materials have memory and how our brains remember. And not long ago, a Swedish physicist with a PhD in experimental particle physics received an HFSP Cross-Disciplinary Fellowship to move to the USA and change his field of expertise to neurobiology and work on visual consciousness. Additional successful projects are featured at the HFSP Science Digest and also at and via the HFSP Awardees Database.

Details and Tips on Applications

The HFSP has a two-step selection process: first, Letter of Intent, and if you are successful, then full proposal. You can anticipate the entire review process will take one year for grants and nine months for fellowships. Only those projects with the highest potential to make a difference in the life sciences are awarded.

For Research Grants, of the 700–900 Letters of Intent submitted and evaluated annually about 15% advance to the Full Proposal stage, and 30–40% of Full Proposals are awarded. For Fellowships, the success rate is higher. For both funding schemes the critical step is writing a compelling, convincing Letter of Intent. How do you do that? Here are a few tips.

  • As you write your short description keep in mind that the review committee members are absolutely the top research scientists, have deep experience in cross-disciplinary investigations, and they are visionaries able to easily distinguish between off-the-shelf projects vs. frontier science.
  • Bear in mind that HFSP considers risk as positive, particularly if applicants are aware of the risks involved and have mitigation plans in mind.
  • HFSP wants visionary ideas and reviewers are looking for bold, adventurous concepts.
  • Reviewers not only span the life sciences: from virology and neuroscience to biochemistry and biophysics, but also mathematics, computer science, structural chemistry, and engineering. Thus, most likely, reviewers will NOT be specialists in your specific field, so be sure to explain your idea, including the expectations and methods, as if you were addressing a smart generalist, with broad interests in science.
  • Use simple language, organize your thoughts in a logical and interesting sequence, avoid acronyms, and don’t use hollow phrases, such as “this is absolute frontier science,” or “we are world experts in….” There is no need to overstate because it will be apparent from your selected publications that you are competent. If your idea is truly bold and earth-shaking it will shine all the more expressed in clear language.
  • Start writing your Letter of Intent early, read and rework it, get feedback. Finetune your description until it says precisely what you intend. One should not cite old white men too often, but a colleague of mine often referred to Winston Churchill (or was it Blaise Pascal?!), who was credited with saying, “If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.” It is indeed more difficult to write short pieces than long passages. It is also a lot of fun getting the cool idea out of my head and onto paper (or computer file), showing it to friends, and asking whether my writing explains the idea convincingly. HFSP Research Grant teams often tell us how much they worked on their Letter of Intent – and how much they enjoyed doing so. It’s true: the editing and rewriting process helps to develop and shape ideas.

 So take a look at the HFSP homepage, read the application guidelines, write up your coolest out-of-the-box idea and see where it leads you! I hope to be reading your application in the near future.

Josef Glößl's honorary membership not only symbolizes his personal dedication but also the power of a composed and resolute leadership style. The ÖGMBT Annual Meeting, a flagship event in the scientific community, provides a platform for researchers and professionals to exchange knowledge, share their findings, and foster collaborations. The honorary membership awarded to Josef Glößl added a prestigious touch to this already impactful gathering, underscoring the importance of recognizing outstanding contributions in the field of molecular life sciences and biotechnology.

 

 

New approaches for the development of antibiotics and cancer treatment, reusing more beverage packaging and the key factor for the beginning of life: awards for young researchers

Five young scientists were honoured for their internationally outstanding work in Salzburg during the opening of the 15th ÖGMBT Annual Meeting: The Life Science Research Awards Austria 2023 of the Austrian Society for Molecular Biosciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT) went to Johanna Gassler (formerly IMBA), David Hoi (IMP) and Klemens Kremser (BOKU). The prizes of 3,000 euros each were awarded with the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour and Economy. Alexander Hanzl (CeMM) and Matthias Hinterndorfer (IMP) received the Life Science PhD Award Austria for their dissertations.

In the category Basic Research, the Life Science Research Award Austria 2023 went to Johanna Gassler for a paper she published during her time at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology IMBA in Vienna.

The key factor for the first steps of life in the fertilised egg cell

 

In her paper published in Science, Gassler focuses on the first steps of life in a fertilised egg cell (zygote). During the first stages of development, the activation of the zygotic genome is crucial for the development of the organism. Gassler was able to show that the protein Nr5a2 plays a crucial role as a pioneer factor. This mechanism could play a role in all vertebrates. Her findings thus contribute to a better understanding of this early phase of life.

The three Life Science Research Awards were once again supported by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Economy. Minister for Labour and Economic Affairs (BMAW) Martin Kocher: "Research and development are key factors for Austria's international competitiveness. They secure high-quality jobs. The Life Science Research Awards Austria promote young scientists - an initiative we are happy to support." Ulrike Unterer from the BMAW spared no effort and traveled to Salzburg to personally congratulate the winners and hand over the prizes.

 

Innovative approach to developing of new antibiotics

 

In the category Applied Research, the Life Science Research Award Austria 2023 went to David Hoi for his work at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna. The results of his study represent a highly innovative approach to the development of new antibiotics: Protein degradation molecules such as BacPROTACs, which specifically target bacterial proteins, are being considered as a new class of antibiotics.

David Hoi and his colleagues have shown that BacPROTACs can be successfully used to target and kill tuberculosis pathogens. This suggests that the BacPROTAC platform may also be suitable for the development of new drugs to treat other serious infectious diseases. The study has been published in the leading journal Cell.

Clp-targeting BacPROTACs impair mycobacterial proteostasis and survival

 

Recycling of beverage packaging without the use of aggressive chemicals

 

The special award in the category Excellence and Societal Impact, which will be awarded for the fifth time in 2023, went to Klemens Kremser from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna. His work describes a novel, environmentally friendly process for recycling the various components of beverage packaging without the use of harsh chemicals: cellulose fibres are removed by enzymes and aluminium is microbially dissolved. The result is pure polyethylene that can be reused as packaging material.

The process developed by Klemens Kremser and his colleagues could significantly increase the reuse of packaging materials in the future. His work has been published in the prestigious journal Resources, Conservation and Recycling.

 

Bioleaching/enzyme-based recycling of aluminium and polyethylene from beverage cartons packaging waste

 

Dissertation prize: The body's own mechanisms against disease-causing proteins

 

In his dissertation, Alexander Hanzl also investigated the field of targeted protein degradation as a therapeutic option. In this process, pathogenic proteins are reduced by the body's own cell mechanisms. This is done using so-called small molecule degraders (E3 ligases). An important aspect of the work was to investigate how resistance to therapy develops. This approach is currently being clinically tested in cancer, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases.

Improved targeted therapies also have significant environmental benefits, reducing the need for broad-spectrum drugs.

 

This work has significant application potential. The underlying idea has been patented and has already contributed to the creation of a successful biotech start-up.

Dissertation prize for novel use of gene scissors in cancer

 

The Life Science PhD Award Austria 2023 for the most innovative doctoral thesis with high application potential went to Matthias Hinterndorfer from the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna.

Important cellular building blocks that play a central role in the development of cancer and other diseases are difficult to study. They are often vital for cell survival. It is therefore very difficult for researchers to modify these building blocks. Hinterndorfer made the breakthrough with the remote-controlled use of the gene scissors CRISPR/Cas. This tool can be used to inactivate any human gene and thus prevent the production of the corresponding cell building block. As a result, short-lived building blocks would quickly disappear after the scissors damaged the responsible gene in the cell.

 

Using a chemical substance, Hinterndorfer succeeded in switching on the gene scissors at any time. In this way, a cellular reaction can be triggered before the important elements of the reaction are inactivated by the gene scissors.This discovery opens up new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cancer.

 

Title of the thesis: Time-resolved genetic screens to dissect gene functions and regulatory networks.

 

The winners were also celebrated in public. Here is a report in the Kronenzeitung

15 years of ÖGMBT: Annual conference is the most important life science event in Austria

 

The ÖGMBT represents 1,300 people and students working in the life sciences as well as 70 companies and institutions. ÖGMBT President Univ.-Prof. Dr. Viktoria Weber at the 15th annual meeting, which this time took place in Salzburg: "The Life Science Awards Austria once again impressively demonstrate the high international standard of Austrian researchers. On behalf of the ÖGMBT, I would like to express my special thanks to our long-standing supporters BMAW, THP Medical Products and Polymun Scientific, who make these awards possible.”

Möchtest du Erfahrung in der Wissenschaftskommunikation sammeln? Treffen einer oder mehrere Punkte auf dich zu, dann bekommst du beim Projekt INDIKINA jetzt die Möglichkeit, beim Gestalten eines interaktiven Kinderbuches zum Thema Allergien mitzuwirken. 

Das Projekt

Im Rahmen des Projekts INDIKINA (INteraktives, DIgitales KInderbuch zum Thema NAhrungsmittelallergien) soll ein interaktives, digitales Kinderbuch für 8- bis 10-Jährige entstehen. Dieses Buch wird auf unterhaltsame Art und Weise grundlegendes Wissen zu Allergien und Nahrungsmittelunverträglichkeiten vermitteln.

Das Besondere und Spannende daran: Das Kinderbuch wird gemeinsam mit der Zielgruppe, nämlich 8- bis 10-jährigen Volksschulkindern, erarbeitet. Von der Konzeption bis zur Umsetzung sind diese in die Entstehung des Kinderbuchs mit eingebunden. Der Input und das Feedback der Schüler:innen werden dazu beitragen, das Buch optimal an die Kenntnisse, Interessen und Bedürfnisse der Altersgruppe anzupassen.

INDIKINA wird von Ines Swoboda (FH Campus Wien, Leiterin des Kompetenzzentrums für Molecular Biotechnology) geleitet, zum Projektteam zählen außerdem Open Science, das Institut für Jugendliteratur und das Softwareunternehmen Vienom. Gefördert wird das Projekt durch den FWF.

Student:innen für die Mitgestaltung gesucht!

Bei der Gestaltung des Kinderbuches sollen auch Studierende aus dem Gesundheits- oder Life-Sciences-Bereich das Projektteam ­mit ihrem Know-How und ihrer Kreativität unterstützen. Die Studierenden können entweder beim Erstellen der Geschichte oder bei deren grafischer Umsetzung mitwirken. Dafür werden sie zuvor in Workshops durch das Institut für Jugendliteratur oder das Softwareunternehmen Vienom gecoacht. INDIKINA bietet Student:innen somit die einzigartige Möglichkeit, hier wertvolle Erfahrung für einen möglichen späteren Berufsweg zu sammeln. Jede/r Mitwirkende wird des Weiteren namentlich im Kinderbuch genannt.

Zeitplan und Arbeitsumfang

Im September 2023 wird ein erstes Treffen aller Interessent:innen an der FH Campus Wien stattfinden, bei dem auch die Einteilung in zwei Gruppen erfolgt: Entweder ist die Mitarbeit beim Erstellen der Geschichte oder bei deren grafischer Gestaltung möglich.

In zwei bis drei Workshops, deren Zeitpunkt und Dauer noch in Abstimmung mit den Studierenden festgelegt wird, erfolgt vor Weihnachten dann das Coaching und das Erstellen des Kinderbuchkonzepts.    

Ab Jänner 2024 wird das von den Studierenden konzipierte Kinderbuch von Vienom programmiert und vom Illustrator/ der Illustratorin illustriert. Nach der Einarbeitung von Feedback der Schüler:innen wird das interaktive Kinderbuch anschließend über die Kanäle aller am Projekt beteiligten verbreitet und auch bei einer öffentlichen Buchpräsentation vorgestellt.
