Gutiérrez-Lobos: Austrian Science Talks in Vancouver
(Vienna, 24 September 2010) At this year's Austrian Science Talks under the motto "The globalisation of science and technology" in Vancouver, Vice Rector Karin Gutiérrez-Lobos reported on career opportunities at Austrian universities.
The Austrian Science Talks are organised by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) for researchers and experts in North America. The talks aim to inform participants about current developments in Austria as a location of innovation and discuss these with representatives from science, research, business, and research and technological policy-makers. Afterwards Vice Rector Gutierrez-Lobos took the opportunity to meet alumni of MedUni Vienna and intensify contacts and cooperations. In this context, the Alumni Club of MedUni Vienna will promote the mentoring programme of ASCINA (Austrian Scientists and Scholars in North America), which will bring young Austrian researchers together with already experienced scientists in the US.
