Event Management E







Event management is a central tool of the Office of Science & Technology. We carefully plan and select our events, maintaining our philosophy of goal-oriented planning, efficient implementation, and the achievement of long-term results.

Not only are events useful to initiate or strengthen networking among people in a certain field, they are also effective for openly establishing certain topics as important issues in policies regarding science, research, and technology.

Informal discussions that take place as a result of an event often lead to new cooperation and give potential project partners the opportunity to interact with each other before taking any further steps. Events represent an important element for the OST Visitors Program, the expansion of the OST Scientist Network, and for exploring new collaborations.

      Lecture with the Austrian Scientist of the Year: Sabine Ladstaetter



"The Many Faces of Ephesus - On Excavating Archaeological Treasures and Educating Tourists"

The 6th lecture of the Austrian Scientist of the Year, the laureate of 2011 Dr. Sabine Ladstaetter, Director of the Austrian Archaeological Institute and Excavation Director at Ephesus, was held on October, 15 at the Embassy of Austria.

The lecture discussed how this modern excavation enterprise employs increasingly nondestructive methods such as geophysical surveys, deep drilling, and surface surveys. Interdisciplinary research projects enabled some 200 international scientists not only to analyze the human legacy, but also to investigate the geography, geology, and climatology, as well as the flora and fauna of the region. Dr. Ladstaetter alsoed discuss another focal point of her work in Ephesus: the challenge of maintaining and preserving the ruins as well as properly introducing the monuments to some two million tourists who visit the excavation site annually.

This event was held in cooperation with the Archaelological Institute of America, EURAXESS, the Turkish Culture and Tourism Office and the Austrian Consulate General New York.

The lecture was aimed at a non-technical audience with interest in archaeology, and was followed by a reception.
