Since 2015, the TU Vienna awards an annual prize to female graduates who have had a particularly successful career. This year a distinguished jury chose Katja Bühler, Head of our Biomedical Image Informatics research group and awarded her with the TU-Frauenpreis.
At the prize-giving ceremony on 3 March 2020 in the TUtheSkyp conference room at Campus Getreidemarkt, Katja Bühler's impressive professional achievements were highlighted, as well as her commitment to supporting the next generation of scientists, especially by acting as a mentor for young female researchers and graduate students.
For exactly those - young female researchers, students and pupils - the TU Women's Prize aims to make the paths and careers of outstanding female scientists visible. Katja Bühler's job biography, which has taken her from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to the TU Vienna and further stations, including international ones, to the position of Research Group Leader at VRVis, is a remarkable example of how women can succeed in the technical and scientific field.
Katja Bühler has already been nominated for the "Women in Tech" award of the Futurezone in 2019. Furthermore, she participated in the top management program for women "Zukunft.Frauen". This is a joint initiative of the Bundesministeriums für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW), the Wirtschaftskammer Österreich (WKÖ) and the Industriellenvereinigung (IV), supporting women on their way to the top management level.
