The Association of the Friends of the OeAW enhances the mutual exchange of knowledge.


In light of an ever increasing differentiation in the research landscape, the association is injecting scientific insights into the discourse in a comprehensible manner. With events such as the Joseph von Sonnenfels Lectures and cooperations with scientific institutions, the Association of the Friends of the OeAW enhances the interest and acceptance of the public for scientific matters.


The board with President Hubert Christian Ehalt and the advisory board are winning over excellent scientists for their vision: The public can gain direct insights into the scientific activities of the Academy and thus understand their social relevance.
