Foundation for Austrian Studies

Annual Conventions

Every year one of the Austria Centers organizes a convention dedicated to the research of Austrian Studies. During these conventions, researchers and (PhD) students get the chance to present their projects to their peers.

From 1988 to 2010 the Foundation for Austrian Studies, under the presidency of Mr. Hugo Weiland, organized and financed the visiting professorship as well as various other related activities. Since 2011 the foundation has been generously supported by the Austrian Bundesministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Wirtschaft.

Every year, the Ministry and the Österreichische Austauschdienst (OeAd) organise an Annual Convention of Austria Centers. The Annual Convention of 2013 was held in Leiden and co-organised by the Leiden Foundation. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Convention planned in Leiden in October 2020 was postponed to October 2021. Recently it has been decided to hold the meeting in its habitual face-to-face form in June 2022.

Below you will find the experiences and impressions of participants of past conventions.
