  • Facilitating the exchange of researchers and innovators, as well as policy makers from Austria with North American thought leaders
  • Connecting the Austrian science and innovation diaspora in North America through RINA, the Research and Innovation Network Austria
  • Supporting and initiating transatlantic R&D co-operations
  • Providing information and policy advice in research, innovation, and technology through BRIDGES, our online magazine on S&T policy issues
  • Organizing study tours and visitor programs
