Validity of University Ranking and Its Ascending Impact on Higher Education in Europe

OST Network and ASciNA Activities


The OST network of Austrian scientists abroad was established by the Office of Science & Technology (OST) at the Austrian Embassy in Washington, D.C., and focuses on the outreach of government-related agencies to Austrian scientists in North America. Its main objective has been to support the scientific community with information and specific advice wherever necessary and requested.

Encouraged by the OST, an independent association - ASciNA (Austrian Scientists and Scholars in North America) - was founded in 2002 with local chapters being established all over the U.S. and Canada. For further information about ASciNA please visit
