  • Collaborating as a partner in the EU project "Euraxess TOP III", Euraxess TOP IV. BRiDGE II and Euraxess Hubs. Our core activities in these projects are the following:
    • Dual Career Service
      The report “An Analysis of Dual Career and Integration Services (DCIS)” was produced within the project Euraxess TOP III with the goal of analysing as well as exchanging knowledge of best practice examples. A report maps the landscape of DCIS in six European countries (Austria, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, and Switzerland) and provides a number of great general and local recommendations for those who are working with DCIS or just starting to implement services.
      The OeAD coordinates the expert group for "Dual Careers and Social Integration" in the Euraxess TOP IV project. Starting in September 2019, a webinar on this topic will be offered every six months.
    • Local networking between international and local researchers and their partners/familiesEuraxess Meeting Point Vienna
    • Refugee initiatives
      The project results have been published in a Guide on Labour Market Integration of Refugee Researchers. The guide provides helpful information for refugee researchers on the integration in the European labour market and tools and resources for staff mentoring refugee researchers. Besides through refugee researchers can also access further information specific to the Austrian labour market as well as information on opportunities for refugees in the field of higher education in general.
