Our task in P01 is the coordination and administration of the overall SFB. We organize the communication among all TACO members, organize and moderate seminars, meetings, workshops, and retreats, communicate with the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the involved institutions, take care of the financial resources provided by the FWF and both universities, etc. We make sure that the communication between the different bodies of the SFB works smoothly to forge a strongly interacting research group. Of particular importance in P01 is science communication, of which the set-up and maintenance of this website is an essential part. We also run a Twitter-Account, a LinkedIn page, and a YouTube channel that inform stakeholders and the general public about the progress and achievements of TACO. In the future, this project’s task will also be to coordinate the efforts for an extension of TACO for another four years.
We have the expertise and hands-on experience in all relevant aspects: running and managing large and outstanding research projects in surface and materials science (Diebold, Kresse), first-hand experience with the funding organization FWF and with science communication (Uttenthaler), and experience in building up and maintaining several websites (Ruh).
