A major asset of CIRDIS are our long-standing cooperations and joint transdisciplinary programmes with national and international academic institutions, research partners and funding organisations. The Center fosters internationally networked research and scientific exchange of the highest standard by inviting distinguished scholars and young researchers and by organising regular scholarly events. Because of the great number of international programmes, CIRDIS is also well-linked to multiple foreign embassies, Austrian embassies abroad and ministries (BMWF, BMeiA).
