"Building bridges of knowledge and expertise between Austria and North America" - this is the mission of the Office of Science & Technology (OST) at the Embassy of Austria in Washington, DC. The OST is the strategic interface in the science, research, and innovation policy between Austria and North America.

Our core competences are:
