Hans Tuppy as an outstanding scientist and teacher has committed himself to science politics. As FWF president he secured the current structure of the FWF (by a 1981 change of the “Forschungsförderungsgesetz”), and as Rector of the University of Vienna he set path for the establishment of the IMP (and thus of the Vienna Biocenter, including the MFPL after the separation of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna). These were important impulses for neurosciences as well. The Center for Brain Research has finally emerged under his FWF presidency from an FWF Special Research Program on brain research.
