NEW 2018 - Vienna Scientific Instruments provides hands-on technical support to the research community in Austria through its Field & Technical Services.
VSI offers a broad range of field and technical services to plan, assist and execute in on-site installation, maintenance and repairs at field experimental sites. Our staff of engineers and technicians brings together extensive hands-on experience and sound technical knowledge to support researchers with e.g. electrical installations, constructing infrastructure (improvised stairs on slopes, huts for instrumentation, walkways, ...) and setting-up measurement instruments. VSI can provide stand-alone services (including acquisition of materials), coordinate the service by other specialized companies or complement your institutions capabilities and workforce (incl. working together with project PhD, MSc students etc.). Whether you need assistance for a one time project or a regular service, our team of technicians can assist you. Please note, that specific rules apply for subcontracting in many funding schemes (EU H2020, etc.) and that planned subcontracting services for field support are thus best included into initial proposal budgets. Please contact us for an estimation of costs.
Attention: Currently our field technician service is limited to research locations in Austria and neighbouring areas to limit travel costs.
