In 2014, the Rectorate established the ESRN on the initiative of four faculties of the University of Vienna. It started its activities in January 2015. To date, six faculties and one research network of the University of Vienna are actively involved in the initiative, which has been extended for another three years (2017-2019) by the Rectorate.
