The new Vienna BioCenter website www.viennabiocenter.org is much more than a make-over of the old one. It presents:
- New design: the new website is upgraded to the fresh look & feel of the new Vienna BioCenter branding and visual identity that were established earlier this year.
- New structure: the new website merges the Vienna BioCenter Core Facilities website and the general Vienna BioCenter website under one roof. This integration reinforces the existing synergies on campus, where the core facilities play a binding role.
- New content: the new website abandons the simple directory approach and presents Vienna BioCenter as a place where the whole is more than the sum of its parts.
The new website is a significant piece of a larger, strategic project to increase the visibility and awareness of the Vienna BioCenter around the world.
We would like our website visitors to have a similar experience as if they would come to Vienna BioCenter physically: the feeling that they have entered a unique, cool and dynamic campus at the forefront of life science research, with some of the best international scientists and cutting-edge projects. A world full of possibilities for the curious minds. A place of cross-entity collaborations and exchanges. A great place for science!
