The aim of the programme is to encourage curators and researchers working on the collection and research focus of the Belvedere/21er Haus – Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present. Networking with colleagues at the Belvedere/21er Haus and in the Vienna art and culture scene is explicitly desired.

The CIR will have access to the museum infrastructure, Research Center and Belvedere/21er Haus collections and will be able to count on the assistance of the staff members responsible for the relevant collections.
The CIR-programme is aimed at curators and researchers who have a relevant university background and curating experience and/or who are capable of devising and working independently on their own project. There is no age limit for the programme.
