The Research Information System FIS is a database of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna and serves the documentation of research achievements of BOKU researchers. Publications, applications and projects, curriculum vitae and achievements for the own scientific environment are a few examples that can be entered by the scientific staff in the FIS. The recorded information is continuously quality-assured by the FIS team and prepared for various internal and external requirements (e.g. intellectual capital statement, target and performance agreements, evaluations). A complete researcher profile also serves as a business card both internally and externally.

Note: You can also use the FIS without registration (for research purposes, document downloads, etc.). A system login is required for editing content.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the FIS team at the following service address: fis(at)
