"Goal-oriented planning, efficient implementation, and achievement of long-term results" is the philosophy of the Office of Science & Technology.

In keeping with our mission of "Building bridges of knowledge and expertise between Austria and North America," our goal is to provide a strategic interface in the areas of science, research, and research policy between Austria and North America.

Our intention is to be recognized as an Austrian institution in North America that has extensive expertise about Austrian and North American policy in the areas of science, research, and technology. This aim is reflected in our core service areas - the OST Scientist Network, Consulting and Information, and R&D cooperation.
