Cornelia Travnicek

“The Vienna Ball of Science – a ball that should be opened with the words ,And every molecule moves!‘ . I’m sure nothing promotes interdisciplinarity more than a little clash on the dance floor. Once you’ve kicked each other, the ice is broken and inspiration for a chat is served on the ball parquet. And since science in Vienna also includes the art universities, there is also a chance that a creative spark may jump over. ”

Cornelia Travnicek is a novelist. Among other honors, she received the Theodor-Körner-Award 2008 and the Audience Prize at the Ingeborg Bachmann Competition 2012. In addition to her literary work, she also works as a researcher at the Vienna Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization. Cornelia studied computer science and sinology.
