The bilateral campaigns are programmes with Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary. They promote academic mobility as well as cooperation projects in science, research and education.
Due to the latest developments in the Covid-19 crisis, the suspension of student exchange programs has been extended to the 2021/ 22 winter term. Study stays and clinical traineeships therefore cannot take place in the framework before the start of the 2022 spring semester. The feasibility of student mobilities in the 2022 spring term will be evaluated in fall 2021.
The application procedure for stays in the 2022 spring term in the meantime will be performed with reervation regarding any unpredictable developments in the covid-19 pandemic.
Background and general information:
A competence in Central European matters, professional networking and cross-border networks, language and culture are just a few benefits of the bilateral campaign programmes. Since 1989, Austria has cultivated an exchange in science, research and education with the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. The programmes are for staff and students of the universities as well as certain research institutions of the participating countries. A stay can last from three days to nine months and also be extended when indicated. Activities such as course attendance, research, cooperation and language courses can be funded.
