According to Science Magazine, early-career researchers play a major role in shaping our increasingly global and knowledge-based societies. Consequently, societies should provide researchers with adequate support. Yet, little is known about how to best support young and established scientists on a global scale. For that reason, the Office of Science and Technology Austria has commissioned an exploratory study which outlines demands and policy objectives that could enable a more conducive exchange of STI stakeholders in Austria and North America. The survey is intended to serve as a catalyst for further discussions, and actions points can be taken from the results to form a more cohesive bond between the Austrian scientific diaspora in North America and local STI stakeholders in Austria.
