Kurt Gödel Research Center for Mathematical Logic (KGRC), Vienna
The KGRC, a research platform of the University of Vienna, is named after Kurt Gödel, who proved the completeness and the incompleteness theorems in Vienna in the years 1929–1931, arguably the most groundbreaking work in mathematical logic of modern times.
