Bei einem Treffen am 11. März 2004 in Laxenburg mit Vertretern der IIASA wurden die HTLs des SSR-Bereichs Wien vorgestellt und eine Zusammenarbeit (Gastvorträge, wissenschaftliche Unterstütung, ...) vereinbart.
Schools Partnership Project: This initiative was started late last year together with the Vienna State Schools Board (Wiener Stadtschulrat). In February, at a meeting at IIASA together with 35 HTL (Higher Technical Schools) directors, department heads and students, an overview of IIASA's work was presented. The directors of the six schools attending presented the highlights of their curricular emphasis, together with examples of their students' thesis work. The presentations were well received and the schools are interested in learning more about IIASA's work at first hand.
